Karama Lodge was the first place we stayed at the beginning of our honeymoon in Tanzania. It is a beautiful place to stay, with each 'room' being your own quirky and individual eco-hut - with stunning views of the surrounding vegetation (and the odd monkey!) As it was our honeymoon the staff had prepared a fresh fruit platter for us... More

Great place to stay, after long day on safari. Nice, tidy place. The accommodation is in wooded bungalows scattered in a a very nice and big garden with beautiful view and terrace. They have a nice pool and restaurant where you can relax, We only stayed there one day, but it was well worthed. Totally recommended.

Lunch was brought to us by the pool and after a swim we had dinner in the restaurant which was simple but plentiful. The upstairs bar area was very attractive but the downstairs restaurant less so. Staff were helpful and friendly. Our hut was rustic with very dim ecolights but a good shower and plenty of hot water. The floor... More

We have spent 3 nights at Karama, 2 days before starting our Kilimanjaro trip and one day after and i must say it was exactly what we needed, a green and peaceful place, away from the crowded and noisy Arusha. The accommodation is in wooded bungalows scattered in a a very nice and big garden with beautiful view and terrace.... More

the individual lodges ensure privacy. but still get all the service you want. Food is great. Lovely starting place for any safari. Not too far from the airport but nicely out of town. Would love to go back.

A bit out of town. Although you are still in the city, it feels like you are in the country. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience Africa a little differently. It has relaxing atmosphere and the staff are super friendly. Good food and very tasty.
