About Us


Our aim is to provide our guests with something different - simple homey comforts at a reasonable price. All of our staff live in the nearby town and surrounding villages and you’ll find they are eager to please and about as friendly as anyone you’ll find anywhere. Your comfort and pleasure whilst you’re staying with us is our main concern.

Bougainvillea Safari Lodge is located on the outskirts of Karatu town about midway between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater. We look forward to your visit when we can offer you true Tanzanian hospitality and a warm welcome.

For a great place to stay - Karibu Bougainvillea Safari Lodge!



Our lodge is owned and managed by Tanzanians who have lived and worked in Karatu their entire lives.
