Acacia Farm Lodge

Acacia Farm Lodge, Karatu, Tanzania


Ideally designed for privacy within an active farm setting, the award-winning Acacia Farm Lodge on the Great Rift’s escarpment region is an excellent jumping-off point for exploration. The romantic lodge sits between Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks on one side and Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park on the other. Within stands of mature trees and coffee plants, serenaded by birdsong, guests are treated to panoramic views of the Karatu farmlands and Ngorongoro forest.


Acacia Farm Lodge’s 32 upscale rooms are designed for solitude, whether for a couple or a family safari group. Sixteen well-spaced cottages each have two rooms, all with a private balcony or terrace to take adventage of the stunning views. Many rooms offer interconnectedness within the cottage to allow for larger groups to stay together while guaranteeing a quiet space for everyone. Classic furnishings, a calming color scheme and ceremic floors are complemented by signature Acacia hospitality. Room features include a mini bar, coffee-making facilities, air-conditioning, satellite television, WiFi and more.


Befitting of its agricultural location, dining at Acacia Farm Lodge is hearty and fresh. Seventy percent of the vegetables the chef uses come from the lodge’s organic vegetable garden. Diverse modern options offer a breadth of culinary choices, all beautifully prepared and presented. Choose from traditional African cuisine, as well as global delicacies. Meals may be taken in the garden, in the dining room, in one of the lodge lounges or on the private balcony of one’s room.

Nearly any time of year, the large, crystal-clear swimming pool is available for a comfortable dip. With gorgeous views from the colorful pool patio and the outdoor poolside bar just steps away, it’s an ideal place to escape the day’s heat or watch the sunset. Spa enthusiasts can arrange for a massage after a long game drive in the parks, farm walks with the lodge’s professional naturalist, cycling throughout the 25-acre property or birding in the area. There’s also a mini-gym on the premises.
