AOE - Oldeani Safari Lodge
Our Exclusive Boutique Eco-Lodge
AOE – Oldeani Safari Lodge is perfectly placed close to several National Parks and game reserves and offers a home away from home relaxed atmosphere and fantastic food.
A Boutique Eco-Lodge located near the Ngorongoro Crater
Located on a hillside above the quiet town of Karatu, and less than a kilometre from the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the Oldeani Safari Lodge offers a serene and convenient location for travellers to visit the northern parks of Tanzania in a more intimate and relaxed environment that is found in most larger safari lodges. The Lodge is within an hour’s drive of both the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Park, and is just a couple hours from Tarangire National Park, so staying with us at the Oldeani Safari Lodge maximizes your game viewing while allowing you to relax and mingle with other guests in our comfortable and informal “home-like” lodge.
At the Oldeani Safari Lodge, we have four comfortable bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom and two with private decks. The other two have doors that open out onto the main deck. We feature a queen size bed and double bed configurations (and the twin beds can be pushed together to make a king).
One of the key features of our lodge is that we are 100% solar. Our power comes from roof-mounted solar panels and our hot water is generated by a passive solar heating system. Additionally, our water comes from a well nearly 150 metres deep and is pumped to the surface into large holding tanks with a solar-powered water pump. This water flows deep in the ground from the protected area of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and has been tested and confirmed to be free of bacteria and contamination. In fact, the water is so good you can safely drink it from the faucet!
At the Oldeani Safari Lodge, you will enjoy delicious meals served by our local chefs. Your stay at the lodge includes a hearty breakfast, a picnic lunch for your day out on safari, and then a sumptuous dinner served in the evening. We also offer beer and wine, plus tea and coffee served all day long.
Our lodge is your “home away from home”, where you can find your own place to hang out or mingle with other guests. Our library and media room offers a quiet place to read or watch a video, our living room offers the warmth of a fire at night with friends, and our large protected deck affords scenic views of the setting sun over the fields, forests and mountains of the Ngorongoro Highlands.
So please come and “hang out” with us when you travel to Tanzania to visit our amazing national parks and conservation areas. Let us say “Karibu” (welcome) to you, as you enjoy the beauty, tranquillity and informality of the Oldeani Safari Lodge.
