Neville and Jacquiline's Holiday to Tanzania and Zanzibar

Service was very very very good. However, one might call it a little cold in attitude and feeling. I suspect this is because the majority of guests prefer it that way but it did feel strange being in such silence. Our room was fantastic, the food was fantastic, packed lunch was fantastic.

Plantation Lodge was a nice mix with our tented camps elsewhere and a great location for exploring Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater. We found the food and service very good and would definitely recommend this Lodge to our friends and family.

This is such a gem of a place. Plantation Lodge has stuck with me since I first came here 5 years ago. It is still as I remember but with a few more facilities/rooms. Again, off the same Karatu area so a perfect place for those wanting to be close enough to explore LMNP and Crater. It is located in the most amazing gardens with a stunning pool and lovely African decor. The rooms are nicely done and it has very friendly staff, very good food and a really lovely vibe. Each room is slightly different and located in the stunning gardens. All in all, amazing value for money and good for all client types.
