Octagon Lodge

The Octagon Lodge is a small and private lodge close to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The Lodge is located 1km after the small town of Karatu between Lake Manyara National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It is approximately two hours drive from Arusha (140km) and three hours drive from KIA Airport (190km). You will encounter a lot of green with stunning gardens and organic home grown vegetables. Accommodation consists of twelve chalets and two stone cottages and one large one bedroom unit.

Food & Drinks


The main restaurant at the Safari Lodge is a delightfully spacious building which recreates the unique spirit of an old African home.

The tastefully decorated interior rooms provide a pleasant spot to enjoy our tasty buffet service or indeed just to relax, chat or play some chess or the Tanzanian bao.

Alternatively you can enjoy the refreshing Tanzanian breeze on the outside terrace which is surrounded by a wide variety of luscious tropical plants and beautifully colored birds.
