Karatu Budget Travel

Karatu is a small town in Tanzania situated between the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.

The Ol Deani Mountain with its extinct volcano and the Ngorongoro Crater are a popular attraction in this region, and Karatu budget travel offers the best way to explore this stunning region.

Karatu Budget Safaris

There are a number of guest farms around Karatu, with varying costs. This makes Karatu budget safaris affordable and accessable.

Karutu is close to attractions such as the world-famous game rich plains of the Serengeti and other highlights in this area include Lake Manyara, Lake Eyasi, Maasai tribes, and nearby Mount Kilimanjaro.

Ngorongoro Crater is a must-see on a visit to Karutu, and is said to be the site of the famous animated Disney movie, The Lion King. Breathtaking scenery and abundant game roaming the planes make this area spectacularly beautiful to behold.

The town itself is very small and rustic, and villagers face challenges from AIDS and poverty. Supplies can be found, but don’t expect world-class service standards.
