About Karatu


Karatu is a dusty little town that lies on the gateway to Ngorongoro Crater. People here are accustomed to seeing tourists and many of the children will run up to a foreigner and ask for a pen. Learning the local greetings can get you far when it comes to being hassled. A simple saitaa will cause both shock and joy.


In Karatu it is no problem to hire a car with driver for an selfmade excursion into the nearby Ngorongore Crater. All lodges and hotels can help you to arrange a car. It should not cost more than 160 $ ( 250 000TSh) including a 4WD car, driver and gas.

  • Walk about Karatu (Steve),  0768777643, e-mail: walkaboutkaratu@gmail.com. Steve is a very friendly young man who speaks English fluently. He can help to arrange a perfect safari, because he used to work at the entrance gate himself. With him it is easily possible to pay the fee right at the gate without the TANAPA card


  •    Manyara Garden. Local beer garden with basic food and cheap beer. Sometimes football is being showed.
  •    Paradise Garden. Nice and green garden with small indivuell huts. Cool beers and food is served.


See Eating section.


There are three banks in town. All with attachted ATM. The entrance fee for Ngorongoro (TANAPA card) can only be paid in the Exim Bank. Ask for the opening hours.
