    Country Lodge is located near the bustling, agricultural town of Karatu – once a sleepy village awakened by rural development and increased visitors to our National Parks and World Heritage Areas.

    From Country Lodge so many adventures lie close by. Enjoy a day trip to Ngorongoro Crater, world famous garden of Eden, teeming with wildlife and the site claiming the origins of Man-Kind’s.

    Descend the grand Escarpment to Lake Manyara National Park with it’s beautiful forest and interesting eco-systems; or visit Tarangire National Park, famous for elephants in the dry season.

    Lake Eyasi is just a short drive away and is home to the wa-Hadzaabe, one of only two true Bushmen tribes surviving in Africa. The intriguing Barabaig people and Datoga tribe also live by Lake Eyasi – a dry and fascinating area lost in time and seeped in cultural history.
