Ngorongoro Farm House

The Ngorongoro Farm House is a small lodge situated opposite the Oldeani volcano, only 5 kilometres from the Ngorongoro Lodware Gate. Once a large coffee plantation, the 75 acre site of private farmland is now home to cows, sheep and pigs as well as an organic garden that produces fruit and vegetables for use at the Farm House.

Rustic bedspreads, rugs and tapestries add to the colourful feel of the rooms. The floors are polished stone and there is a fireplace for colder days and nights. The ensuite bathrooms are small but very clean and all have flush toilets.

The rooms face out over open farmland and the pretty and colourful gardens and you can sit on your veranda and watch the world go by.

Each set of rooms has its own lounge and bar area set in a farmhouse style building with a thatched roof and white washed walls. The dining room is supplied with fresh food from the farm and the meals served here are delicious.

To large swimming pool and sun deck are great places to enjoy a swim after a game drive and is also a good place to watch the sun set.
