experience something very special
As a guest in our lodge you can experience wild animals on safari, the bushmen at Lake Eyasi or the happy children in a school. You can come to relax, to experience, or to get involved with helping hands in the society. Foresight Eco Lodge offers a variety of opportunities for open-minded people.
Driven by the enthusiasm for the country and its people and supported by the vision of an own school for children from difficult backgrounds, this eco lodge with a social orientation was brought to life.
COME BY AND BECOME A PART OF IT.
Welcome to Our Eco Lodge
Our lodge is located in one of the most exciting and thrilling areas of Tanzania! After a day full of extraordinary impressions, you can sit back and relax, enjoy the nature and the view with the best food. During the construction of our lodge we have combined the traditional with the modern, and we think we have succeeded quite well. The top priority was always that it is cozy and our guests feel completely comfortable!
The charming, round bungalows with a roof of palm leaves and a magnificent view are the perfect size for two to three people. Built with handmade local bricks, the sustainable bungalows are nevertheless elegant, simple and clean inside. The bathroom is tasteful with natural stones, wooden vanity and chic sinks. Showering pleasure is guaranteed with the large shower head.
Families or larger groups will feel very comfortable in our family tents. They are each a large tent with all the comfort you could wish for. A beautiful bathroom with modern shower, a “cozy” toilet and three very comfortable beds. The tents are separable in the middle. The large terrace with a view of the Ngorongoro jungle invites you to relax and enjoy.
Proudly and excitedly we present our new, cute Tiny House. The little house has it all: toilet, hot shower and two comfortable single beds. The living area then flows smoothly into the balcony and the beds can be pushed onto the balcony if desired. On clear nights, you can wonderfully gaze at the fantastic starry sky from your bed through the “glass roof”. Let’s glamp!
What Our Clients Say About Us
Everything wonderful with all-round carefree package 🙂
We spent just under a week of our honeymoon in a spacious family tent. From there we got to experience Tanzania. Our tour was super planned. We visited a school, went on safaris, went hunting with the bushmen and much more … We felt at home in the lodge. Everything was very neat and clean. The Foresight team is very friendly and always in a good mood. We were serenaded when we arrived. The food was always enough and delicious. For us there was nothing to complain about. We had a wonderful time and would always come back.
Mega nice ambience ... everyone is so friendly and accommodating
At dinner you feel like in the "noble place" 😄 and yet everything is so casual and familiar. The cottages and the family tent are super nicely decorated ... nature bound, stylish and super clean. The night was after the Kilimanjaro tour ... an absolute dream. Anita and Ernest were so kind to provide us with spontaneous accommodation for one night as we were unfortunately only passing through. We would have liked to stay longer and enjoy your service and the beautiful ambience on the terraces. Unfortunately, we also learned only in the evening that the two also plan safaris. When we left, we still got massive provisions for the day in the Ngorongoro National Park. Even our driver was taken care of. I would give more stars if it were possible 😉 top, just keep it up!
Beautiful new lodge in a peaceful surrounding!
Beautifully located lodge, little drive from the main road but very much worth your while. Very friendly, helpful and welcoming staff which make you feel at home. We stayed for a total of 4 days and don’t regret it. Ernest can tell you everything about the region and is happy to arrange activities in the neighborhood of the lodge or to one of the national parks. Highly recommend this place!
A good location near Ngorongoro Conservation Area
We spent two nights at Foresight Lodge in April 2022. We received a very warm welcome. We were able to rest in a comfortable and quiet lodge with a beautiful view. We enjoyed good meals in the restaurant. Ernest and his team took the time to be at our disposal.
Best hospitality and views in Karatu!
The views are spectacular, rooms spacious, staff warm and friendly, unique beautiful setting, open fire to enjoy the company of other guests. Our host Ernest made us feel at home! small attention to details like hot water bottles in our bed!!! Property was so relaxing we stayed another day.
In love with this place!
We had the most amazing time! Felt like home away from home from the very beginning! The staff is so welcoming, we actually miss them! The food made by chef George W. was magnificent, and made with love every single dish👌 And the view—you can't get enough of it. The best value.
It was just beautiful …
… both the view and the grounds themselves. The staff were also super friendly and helpful. Also the food was delicious 😋 Can only recommend it!
A place out of time, beautiful, quiet but surrounded by real people! George the cook prepares excellent dishes. Pauline, Jennifer, Anna, Raphaelli are very attentive. And what can we say about Ernest ... thank you for the welcome, for his team and the atmosphere and beauty of the place.
Super friendly staff
Great welcome. Excellent catering. Lodge brand new and built to a high standard. Great views and close to Ngorongoro Gate. Would book again anytime.
Hello Anita and Ernest,
… I can say that my thoughts are still in Tanzania and also with you in the lodge. This trip was the most impressive I ever made and certainly not my last to Tanzania. Best regards from all of us. And keep up the good work and good luck with your projects.
Beautiful Lodge with friendly people
We spent a night at the foresight eco lodge before entering the Ngorongoro Crater early the next morning. It is a little off-road drive from the Main road but it is absolutely worth it. We fell in love with the place immediately. Ernest and his crew made us feel welcome from the beginning and we spent a beautiful night listening to his stories, as he is a great story teller. The food in the restaurant was very good. Everything was perfect and everybody was so nice. I would recommend this place to anyone and I will definitely visit again! Thank you Foresight-team! Until next time:)

A wonderful, welcoming stay in a beautiful location
We had such a wonderful stay at Foresight Eco Lodge. Our welcome from all the staff was so friendly. The location is beautiful with brilliant views over Karatu. It is also very nice being up amongst the local villages. There are lots of local activities to get involved in and some very scenic walks in the area. Anita and Ernest made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend staying here.
A blissful place, absolute soul igniting the best place to reset our mind. Staff were amazingly warm and welcoming. Rooms awesome—all natural and well executed, it's like a dream come true with a great view swinging between manyara and ngorongoro. Awww yes it's cold, carry some clothes depending on the season you travel. And welcome to Tanzania.
so this is the best inspiration/info email we have ever received—Awesome and thanks for the kind words. (via email)
Amazing Lodge to really get to know Tanzania
I was here for 6 weeks as a volunteer to help a little on the lodge and mainly to help in the nearby school. It was a very great way to experience this amazing country and the lodge is the perfect way to get in touch with the people and their culture more and more. The staff is super nice and they help and teach you everything you need to know. And no question, the rooms, the food and the service is perfect to relax and calm down after a long day of working in the school or safari. A very great time I had here, thank you Foresight Lodge 🙂
The foresight eco lodge is a great place
We camped on the premises and also had a chance to see the different rooms and bungalows, which were absolutely beautiful. The restaurant is great and we were offered a very good price. The best thing about this place is Ernest, the manager and all the staff. Ernest is the most welcoming person, I have ever met. He told us stories, explained Masai traditions to us and answered all our questions about the national park. Absolutely outstanding. Everybody was so nice and welcoming. I would recommend everybody to stay here for a couple of days, enjoy the beautiful location and spend some time with the wonderful people here! Asante sana and see you soon! Hakuna matata!
Thank you to all the Foresight team! 🙏🙏🙏
We spent two nights in this magnificent eco lodge with a warm welcome, enthusiastic people overflowing with energy, smiles, kindness … What can we say about Georges’ cooking if not delicious, inventive and a very discreet service ... A bungalow facing the valley, superb view and nicely furnished room. An attention in the evening when we come back from the meal, a hot water bottle for each one in the big bed (the evenings are fresh) ... Ernest, a boss always in the front line, full of humor and handling French expressions with an inimitable style. In a word, don’t miss this magnificent place.

Hello, we are Anita and Ernest, founders and managing directors of Foresight Eco Lodge & Safaris. We met at the hotel where Ernest previously worked.

We combine the modern with the traditional, give and get ourselves, experience and relax, follow proven paths and still paths and try new things. Curious? Find out more about us and our vision …
