Welcome to Eileen's Trees Inn in the 'Crater Highlands' town of Karatu. Our guest rooms are set in beautiful tropical gardens and you'll find a bar, small lounge area and dining room in a rustic wooden building reminiscent of a tree house.

Eileen's Trees Inn is owned and managed by Tanzanians who have been in the safari and hospitality business for many years. Our mission is to provide our safari visitors comfortable accommodation at good value and a low price point.

A large swimming pool is scheduled for completion soon and a small gift shop is in the planning stage.

Our own dedicated water source is a deep pure well to ensure your stay with us is healthy. We also provide bottled water in the rooms. Eileen's guests rave about the food and service and we think you'll agree with them.


We have 20 rooms En suite single, double, triple and family room is possible on request, our rooms are spacious and comfortable privately situated throughout lush gardens. Each room has twin beds or a large (queen size) bed with mosquito nets. Triples are possible on request. All rooms have a writing desk and seating on the veranda.

The bathrooms have a large shower with hot water on demand. Bottled drinking water is provided in every room.


Our talented chefs take great pride in creating delicious, nutritious meals from locally sourced ingredients. Breakfast consists of cereal, fruits and bread with eggs cooked to order. Lunch and dinner are served buffet style and consist of soup and rolls, a selection of salads plus rice, potatoes, vegetables and meat or chicken dishes followed by scrumptious dessert. We can cater for vegetarians with prior notice.

Our Garden

We take great pride in our gardens. Beds of tropical flowers and many varieties of trees compliment soothing green lawns where guests can sit to read or have a cool drink or even enjoy lunch. Bananas, pomegranates and lemons are just some of the fruit growing along with roses, cannas, bougainvillea, hibiscus and myriad varieties of tropical blooms. All this bounty attracts many colourful and interesting birds and our gardeners take pride in keeping the grounds in beautiful order for your enjoyment


Wildlife & Nature

The gate to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (home to the famous Ngorongoro Crater) is a short drive from us. Lake Manyara National Park is about a forty-minute drive and Tarangire National Park is about one and a half hours away. We're the perfectly base for a wonderful wildlife and cultural safari experience in northern Tanzania. We can assist you with transportation with prior notice should the need arise.


There are several cultural tourism programmes nearby that can give you a glimpse of life in small town Tanzania. The predominant tribe in our area is the Iraqw, a cushite people who typically farm the hills and valleys. Wheat, coffee, beans and corn fill the surrounding fields during the growing seasons and local smallholdings provide vegetables, eggs and poultry. The Maasai people inhabit the Ngorongoro and surrounding area and about two hours away on the Rift Valley floor near Lake Eyasi you'll find the interesting Barabaig tribe as well as the last remaining true Bushmen in

Walk & Hike

The well-known hike into the Ngorongoro Forest to the top of a waterfall and the 'elephant caves' is situated nearby, about a half-hour drive away. Within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area are several mountains and craters that provide wonderful longer hiking opportunities such as Lemagarut, Sadiman and Empakai. You'll need to make arrangements to have an armed ranger accompany you for these. It's also possible and safe to take casual walks or hikes down any of the country lanes near our lodge.


If you want to venture into the town of Karatu to have a taste of local African life we can arrange a guide or point you in the right direction. Our town has a typical market surrounded by little local shops. You can buy colorful fabrics called kanga and kitenge or locate the few curio stalls on wheels for carvings and trinkets. A nearby art gallery offers the best of Tanzania's fine art including painting and sculpture.
