Trip Advisor reviews for Plantation Lodge

plantation lodge

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.


Standard Rooms
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 roommaids care conscientiously for the rooms and are happy to see to our guests’ needs.

Coffee House Suites
Kent and Blue Mountain – each of these suites is a work of art. Stylish and comfortable. The fireplace room has access to the shared terrace and to the garden, the airy bedroom with its veranda and two sunbeds, the spacious bathroom ... With attention to detail and a sure feeling for the successful composition of furniture and accessories here are two truly beautiful suites waiting for guests to come and feel good in them.

Jacaranda Suite
... also known as the Honeymoon Suite, lies somewhat apart from the other rooms. The views from here are particularly lovely: The windows in the fireplace room and in the bedroom offer spectacular views of the garden. The modern, very tastefully designed bathroom is highly inviting. Right next to the entrance is the terrace, a nice quiet spot for reading, writing postcards and relaxing amid glorious nature.

Garden House
Garden House offers plenty of room: in four double bedrooms and in the rest of the house. Families and groups of friends can enjoy loads of room here in this two-story house. From the upper fireplace room with its lounge seating the stairs lead down into the heart of the house – the spacious dining room with its impressive table. Not only the house’s interior is highly pleasing, the wooden veranda also offers spectacular views of the picturesque hills – it’s the best place to sit and sip a sundowner.


Fresh variety is the motto of our kitchen. We grow our own vegetables, salads, herbs and fruit. This means that the products from our kitchen are healthy, untreated and particularly tasty. In our restaurant we pamper our guests every evening with a fine multicourse meal in a stylish, comfortable atmosphere. A good wine from our cellar rounds off the culinary pleasure.
At lunchtime you can enjoy our dishes al fresco. We’ll be happy to serve you lunch or afternoon coffee and cake at one of our garden tables.


Feel like an aperitif? Our bar is a well-frequented meeting place after an exciting day. Over a freshly mixed cocktail or a glass of wine you’ll soon find yourself taking part in the conversation. Come here to meet other guests, to exchange African experiences and find valuable hints. Or just enjoy your drink in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.


Bougainvillea, frangipani, jacaranda... Our 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 our center.

the pool

Whether you just want to laze around or you want to refresh yourself after a dusty game drive – our 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.


Birdwatching in the garden of Plantation Lodge
Such colorful birds as Fischer’s lovebirds or the yellow-bellied sunbird are regular visitors to Plantation Lodge. Our staff will explain the various bird species to you on a tour around our flowering garden.

Visit to a coffee plantation
The coffee-exporting country Tanzania stands for very high quality products. A walk with one of our staff will lead to a neighboring coffee plantation. Here you will learn how coffee beans are treated and what steps are needed to make this delicious and aromatic beverage.

Visit to a farm
With one of our staff you will visit one of the farms adjacent to the lodge. Here you will gain an insight into African country life: You will see how the people on the farm live and work.

Relax luxuriously with a massage and feel newborn afterwards. Make an appointment with our qualified masseuse and spoil yourself.
