Karatu Simba Lodge

Karatu Simba Lodge is located about a 30 minute drive from the gate of Lake Manyara National Park, and approximately four km off the main road to the entry of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Accommodation at Karatu Simba Lodge is in individual twin, double or triple cottages or rondavels with canvas walls and solid attached bathroom and shower, tastefully and simply decorated with handmade furniture of African hardwood. Each unit has its own deck with safari chairs for relaxing and viewing the pastoral setting; from which you may see a troop of baboons foraging in the recently harvested barley fields or local ‘cowboys’ tending their herds.

All rooms have a view to the forest, fields and far distant hills. Rooms at Karatu Simba are beautifully and simply decorated with local fabrics and hard wood furniture, and all beds have mosquito nets. Full amenities are provided and rooms are solar powered with solar heated water.

We at African Big Cats Safaris feel an obligation to give back to our community. We are committed to donate a portion of our profits  to the Safe Water Ceramics Filters Factory which enables schools and villages to have pure drinking water .  Also our support to our local orphanage to assist the less fortunate children who are our hope for a bright future.
