Everywhere you look, you can see an even feel the person atmosphere of this owner – run lodge with furnishing tha were selected with great attention to detail.

The Rooms

As mentioned, the rooms offer a simple but elegant luxury. All of them open out onto their own balconies and give views out either to the Highlands or to the beautiful gardens that surround the property. In particular the suites have the added benefit of a little extra room and vast baths that are almost plunge pools!

Coupled with the really friendly and helpful management, Plantation Lodge just about edges it over its neighbours such as Gibb’s Farm or the Ngorongoro Farmhouse.


Of course, game drives and crater descents are offered – a highlight for the majority! They also offer Olmoti nature walks and climbs (an ancient Maasai cattle trail through mountain forest and rocky outcrops), decents into the Empakaai crater (a nearby crater that is famous for its pink flamingo), and community and cultural visits to see the local Masaai villages.
