Welcome to Eileen's Trees Inn in the ‘Crater Highlands’ town of Karatu. 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.
Our friendly staff is on call and at your service. They look forward to welcoming you to Eileen's and Karatu. Our little lodge is named after the owner's daughter and we pride ourselves on our friendly service and tasty fresh food. Our delightful gardens create a soothing atmosphere for relaxation. Children and families are most welcome and we can organise a triple room for groups when necessary.
We hope you'll consider a stay with us soon. We think you'll find the rates reasonable and the location, surroundings, food and service outstanding. If your itinerary includes a stop in Karatu please tell your tour operator or safari organiser that you’d like to stay with us! Karibu is ‘welcome’ in our language, Ki-Swahili.
Eileen’s Trees Inn, located in the town of Karatu, is about a two hour drive from the northern Tanzania town of Arusha, a three hour drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) and a thirty-five minute drive from Manyara Airport (LKY).
“Thank you for a pleasant, quite escape in the middle of Karatu. Eileen’s has the charm and warmth of a small out of the way place, but the convenience of being close to town. The rooms are large and clean and surrounded with lush vegetation, creating a private feel. I would highly recommend it for anyone that wants the feel of luxury without the price! And I loved the great local staff who delivered such personal service.”
