Description


Karama is a (Ki)swahili word meaning favour/ privilege/ honour/ blessing. This is a nature-friendly lodge near Arusha with good service and cuisine. Built on a steep hillside, the lodge has split levels and many stairs. From all buildings there is a good view over the valley below. This is still a sort of suburb of Arusha so there are people living in the valley below. On a clear day one can see Mount Meru and the famous Mount Kilimanjaro. The rooms consist of wooden structures raised up on poles,  older rooms and rooms built  more recently. They are quite simply finished, with four poster beds complete with mosquito nets, and each room has its own (simple) shower and toilet plus outside deck. The split-level lounge/bar is nicely decorated with views over the valley as well as of the swimming pool and pool deck, situated on a lower terrace. There is a snooker table and notice the beautiful paintings by local artists.
