Lilac Tanzania


Lilac Tanzania

Lilac Tanzania is a proudly Tanzanian-owned business located in the picturesque town of Karatu, just outside the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Our commitment to providing exceptional experiences is reflected in our four distinct locations scattered across Karatu.

Our original Lilac restaurant is situated within the FAME Medical complex, a non-profit hospital dedicated to serving the local community (learn more about FAME here). It’s not just a dining experience; it’s a chance to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need.

Nestled in the heart of Karatu, our centrally located Lilac Café awaits you with its inviting ambiance. Here, you can unwind in comfortable seating while enjoying complimentary internet access. Our café proudly serves great coffee, as well as a delectable array of fresh and wholesome dishes, including salads and sandwiches. You’ll find Lilac Café conveniently situated on the main road in Karatu, in close proximity to Exim Bank.

At Lilac Tanzania, we are dedicated to offering a warm and welcoming atmosphere alongside exceptional food and service. Whether you’re a local resident or a traveler passing through this charming town, we invite you to join us for a delightful culinary experience and, in the case of our original Lilac restaurant, a chance to contribute to the betterment of the local community.
