The lodge’s location promises maximum safari enjoyment: a stone’s throw from the entrance to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and just a short journey from the Serengeti.
The Ngorongoro Crater is often called the 8th Wonder of the World. The crater was formed when a volcano collapsed creating the largest unbroken caldera on earth, almost 2,000 feet deep and 21 kilometers wide. Nearly 25,000 large mammals reside within the crater including some of Africa’s highest densities of lions and spotted hyenas. This is the best location in Tanzania to spot the highly endangered black rhino. Elephant, buffalo, zebra, and wildebeest are all common and within this confined habitat very close up viewing is often possible.
Like a green oasis, Plantation Lodge rests on the soft, red-brown hills amidst the vastness and silence of East Africa. The individually furnished rooms and suites melting harmoniously into the flowering garden offer comfort and relaxation. Everywhere you look, you can see and even feel the personal atmosphere of this owner-run lodge with furnishings that were selected with great attention to detail. Plantation Lodge’s cordial service leaves no wish unfulfilled.
To stay at Plantation Lodge is to immerse yourself in a world of rest and relaxation. The lodge’s 16 rooms lie generously distributed throughout the flowering garden, some with verandas and direct access to the garden. Individuality is a major feature of Plantation Lodge, where each room has its own style, choice accessories and bouquets of fresh flowers from the garden that put the cherry on the cake.
