Bougainvillea Safari Lodge Highlights

Bougainvillea Safari Lodge is located on the outskirts of Karatu town about midway between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater. Being situated in a busy town, Bougainvillea Safari Lodge has a slightly different yet more lively feel than other more remote safari destinations; however, it is set back off the main road and guests won't find this charming lodge noisy or crowded. The bungalows are comfortable and spotless and the staff are warm, friendly and hospitable, leaving guesyts feeling as though they could have been visiting old friends. For guests traveling with thier own safari guide and 4WD vehicle, this good-value lodge is incredibly convenient for visiting either Lake Manyara, or the Ngorongoro Crater.
