The Octagon Safari Lodge is a small and intimate hotel a short drive from Tanzania 's world famous Ngorongoro Crater. Built in the old colonial farmhouse style the lodge evokes the charm of an old African homestead.

In harmony with the environment the architecture combines natural elements to give the lodge an authentic African feel.

Octagon Safari Lodge is situated on the spacious grounds, which are home to a wide variety of birdlife and provide a wonderfull place to relax and enjoy an afternoon tea.

Rooms & Suites:

All Octagon Safari Lodge rooms have been designed in the style of luxury summer chalets. Every effort has been made to ensure your personal comfort. The buildings have been planned with a strong emphasis on harmonising the structures with the surrounding vegetation.

Each room can accommodate two people or more and contains an ensuite bathroom and shower. The beds are four poster and all extra large with draping nets for protection against insects. Each chalet also has its own individual private veranda outside where guests can sit out and enjoy the sun; read a book or even write a postcard!

Food & Wine:

The main restaurant is a delightfully spacious building which recreates the unique spirit of an old African homestead. The tastefully textured interior rooms provide a beautiful spot to enjoy our sumptuous buffet service or indeed just to relax, chat or play some chess or the Tanzanian bao.

Alternatively you can enjoy the refreshing breeze on the outside terrace which is surrounded by a multitude of luscious tropical plants and beautifully coloured birds.


The Octagon Safari Lodge gardens provide a terrific spot to relax and contemplate the many animals you have encountered during your days on safari. You can sit out on the patio, enjoy some tea and scones or read a book.

After a tiring day on safari it is not only the animals of the serengeti that need a choice watering hole to relax!! Designed by Irishman Rory Egan and thatched by the local masai, The Irish Bar, provides our guests with a uniquely charming venue to put their feet up and catch up on the day's safari adventures.

Sip an Irish whiskey or a Guinness by the old stone fireplace or relax in a wicker chair on our cool outside terrace.
