The Octagon Safari Lodge

You are Here: › The Octagon Safari Lodge

The indoor and outdoor spaces at The Octagon Safari Lodge in Karatu Tanzania are all top-notch; there's even a comfortable and cozy Irish pub on the premises.

All the staff is extremely friendly and the meals are amongst the best I had while travelling in Tanzania.

Best of all, Rory was more than happy to take the time to suggest options for exploring the Ngorongoro Conservation Area that ensured we would get the best possible experience.

This is a beautiful, well run oasis with comfortable rooms, friendly and attentive staff, and the best Irish Pub in Karatu.

The owners are on site and very involved with the day to day operation.

The rooms are large, well appointed with comfortable beds and the bathrooms have large showers. We stayed three nights and were never without hot water or electricity.

The price was half what we paid at the Crater Rim View Lodge where we sadly had to go for one night when the Octagon was already previously fully booked.

It was one of the most inexpensive places in town and one of the best. the food was excellent, our group included a vegetarian and there was plenty of variety for all.

One of the owners is Irish and we had to do a money transfer to Ireland to reserve the room; that was the only negative

I simply cannot recommend this place enough. If you're in the area, stop in (if only for a pint of Guinness or a quality whisky).
