Safari-Lodges, Hotels and Safari-Camps in Tanzania
Outside of Karatu, the last town before entering into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the same operator runs a 4-star hotel with 30 rooms, restaurant, bar, pool and night entertainment. The hotel is located on a hill with a view deep into the southern Ngorongoro forest and the surrounding coffee plantations. It serves as a base for safari trips to Ngorongoro crater and Lake Eyasi, and as a stopover for tourists heading towards the Serengeti which is located more in the west. Here, you can also be employed in services such as front office, planning and implementation of events, activities and cuisine. As the hotel has no accommodation for employees, would you stay in a guest house in the village of Karatu, where the other hotel employees live, about 5 minutes walking distance to the hotel. This will incur a monthly rent.

There is an established trainee program that you will go through.
