Accommodation at Karatu Simba Lodge is in individual twin, double or
triple cottages or rondavels with canvas walls and solid attached bathroom and
shower, tastefully and simply decorated with hand made furniture of African
hardwood. Each unit has its own deck with safari chairs for relaxing and
viewing the pastoral setting; from which you may see a troop of baboons
foraging in the recently harvested barley fields or local ‘cowboys’ tending
their herds. Fall asleep to the call of
the bush baby and Montane nightjar.
All rooms have a view to the forest, fields and far distant hills. Rooms
at Karatu Simba are beautifully and simply decorated with local fabrics and
hard wood furniture; the beds all have mosquito nets. Full amenities are
provided and rooms are solar powered with solar heatedwater; there isa power
strip for battery charging.
- Each room has a torch (flashlight) and umbrella for you to use during your stay with us. A whistle is also provided in case you need to alert the security guards.
- As the solar lighting may be dimmer than you’re used to, we highly recommend you bring a headlamp or ‘book light’ for reading in bed at night.
- Due to our solar electrical system it’s not possible to use a hair dryer at Karatu Simba. We kindly request that you don’t attempt to plug in a hair dryer as in all likelihood it will blow the system resulting in loss of power to the entire lodge.
