In the region of Arusha in northern Tanzania, Karatu is a dynamic, colourful and lively town at the foot of the Ngorongoro crater. Karatu holidays are often the starting point for a trip to the Ngorongoro, but are equally lovely as a break during a safari trip. In addition the incredible natural surroundings in this beautiful part of the world, includes amazing archaeological sites, such as Nasera,
which indicates the presence of hominids several million years ago. Although April sees heavy rains, holidays to Karatu are lovely throughout the year and are full of incredible landscapes, wildlife and a diversity of flora.
