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.
The lodge’s location promises maximum safari enjoyment: a stone’s throw from the entrance to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a short hop from the Tarangire and Lake Manyara national parks, and just a short journey from the Serengeti.
Bougainvillea, frangipani, jacaranda… the garden will pamper all your senses: with the scent of tropical plants, with its colorful flowers, with the song of exotic birds. Here you can be spoiled by the culinary delights or simply watch the geese grazing. The garden is not merely a flowering backdrop, it is put to good practical use, providing as it does an inexhaustible supply of flowers for the vases in the lodge’s rooms, fruits from the mango and avocado trees for our guests, and its coffee trees are far more than mere decoration. The garden is the lodge’s center.
Whether you just want to laze around or you want to refresh yourself after a dusty game drive – the pool with its view of the picturesque hills is the ideal place for a break. You can relax luxuriously on one of the comfortable sunbeds. Read, swim, dream – time will just fly. And when the sun sinks blood red behind Mount Oldeani, this is the most romantic place for a sundowner.
Fresh variety is the motto of the lodge’s kitchen. They grow their our own vegetables, salads, herbs and fruit. This means that the products from their kitchen are healthy, untreated and particularly tasty. In their restaurant they pamper their guests every evening with a fine multi course meal in a stylish, comfortable atmosphere. A good wine from their cellar rounds off the culinary pleasure.
At lunchtime you can enjoy their dishes al fresco. They’ll be happy to serve you lunch or afternoon coffee and cake at one of their garden tables.
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. The lodge’s room maids care conscientiously for the rooms and are happy to see to our guests’ needs.Â Â
