Tloma is an attractive, rural lodge located in the Karatu area of Northern Tanzania. Situated on the raised shoulder of a valley, the property affords wonderful views across the surrounding coffee plantations towards the breath-taking Ngorongoro Crater.

The main building houses a pleasant lounge, dining area and viewing terrace. The beautiful gardens and large heated pool are a real draw, and a massage service is also available. This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a change of pace and scenery after a busy safari schedule.

The range of activities on offer is superb, including visits to the forests of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, local waterfalls, and nearby farms and villages. Day trips to Lake Eyasi can also be arranged. Although the Ngorongoro Crater is quite some distance from the lodge and the property itself does not offer trips there, we tend to deploy vehicles for exclusive use with private guides, giving guests the flexibility to make the visit if they wish.

With 24 colonial cottage-style rooms and 12 more basic ‘garden-view’ rooms, the lodge is relatively large in size. All rooms are modest but spacious with twin or double beds, en-suite bathrooms and outdoor seating areas. Room and laundry services are available.

Children aged 6 years and up are welcome. There are 4 triple rooms, or 4 inter-connecting rooms depending on family requirements. The heated pool and lovely gardens are a real treat for families and a great place to rest between activities.

Tloma Lodge is a good quality, mid-range property in a peaceful and scenic location offering a wide range of activities and cultural experiences.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
