When I was planning my short vacation to Tanzania, only info that I had was my lonely planet book but it was published in 2012. Anyhow Lodge was selected as one of the top choice. After checking the website, I booked my room and never knew it is going to be the best place in Arusha town! This environment is... More

I had dinner there with a friend and we selected it on spec, mainly because we misread the name in the dark - thinking it was Karma Lodge and that sounded like a good sign. Well, it turned out to be excellent. We traveled from Arusha on a Friday night and eventually wound up in the dark, on a series... More

My girlfriend researched and booked Karama lodge after a strenuous three day safari, and it was perfect for us. The food was delcious, staff was very helpful and the room was spacious, attractive, and clean. We even had decent wifi in the lux-rustic setting. We had a balcony and a comfortable bed. It was a great visit and we would... More

This is a beautiful, bumpy and winding road to an Arusha garden. The staff welcomed and accommodated me with attention and information. I was assisted to make arrangements for a taxi-guide on my arrival day. Beautiful and luxurious rooms,

Staff was very friendly, food was good, and compared to the rest of the places in Arusha the location is awesome. It's away from the city center up on a hillside with nice views of the surrounding area especially from the bar above the restaurant. Each bungalow is self contained has a hot water shower, toilet/sink, and balcony. Lots of... More

This place is simply paradise. The people are so nice, food is beyond great, everything is neat and clean. There's hot running water all the time (when you're in Tanzania it's important) and free wi-fi. I had a perfect time at Karama Lodge, will definitely come back again.

We enjoyed one night in this lodge after our safari and before leaving from Kilimanjaro airport. The rooms itself are relatively basic and a bit too small to move around. However, the view from the nice balcony and the location and general set up of the lodges do make up for anything in the cabin that could be a bit... More

The Karama lodge made us feel like we were out in the wild (you could hear every sound, feel like you're in a tent) with running water and electricity. The view from the bar is spectacular, but I would recommend this as more of a couples' get-away than a family or group spot. Each room is secluded with it's own... More

This lodge was our introduction to lodge accommodation before our Serengetti adventure. We thought it was an attractive location in the trees, with both the common areas (lounge and dining room) and individual rooms being of a high standard. Each cabin had a sizeable balcony area looking out to the hills opposite. The layout of our cabin was a bit... More

I spent one night here before heading out on a safari tour. It is slightly away from town in a quiet spot on a hill. The individual cabins are cute and comfortable. It is nothing too fancy, but very nice and all have a small balcony. The natural sounds were lovely to fall asleep and wake up to. The bed... More
