Best place to stay for all the comforts of home and excellent tasting food selection. The staff were extremely friendly and made my stay very enjoyable. Special thanks to Nancy for making me laugh and looking forward to returning to Serengeti.

Even though this was the first of many lodges I've stayed at in a fortnight, it still was one of the best. After long days in jeeps, being blown away by the beautiful creatures we've seen plus the amazing scenery of the Ngorongoro Crater, it was a pleasure to walk in to greetings from the staff, a swim, hot shower,...

Staff was the best, Rooms very nice and comfortable. Wifi semi reliable as in most lodges in Tanzania. Food was good but I wouldn't consider Buffet's fine dining. Overall an amazing place to stay for a relaxed vacation or on the way to from safari's in the Serengeti

This lodge has huge grounds that include beautiful wooded areas. The cabins are spread out on a large area and hidden in the trees. They had a show of local dances where the guests participate. As I was on safari we often took lunch boxes, they had the best packed lunch we had.

Stayed for two nights between tarangire and ngorongoro! The room is more than awesome and the entire lodge is big and very nice with own garden. The staff is superfriendly and easygoing! Only little deduction is the wifi connection. Will come back without a doubt.

Its not often you get to eat the produce that is grown on site at a hotel but this was a nice twist to Ngorongoro Farmhouse. It was a lovely setting and we enjoyed our stay here. We were a little put off upon arrival as the reception staff werent particularly friendly but that appears to have been the exception...

The lodge and exquisite gardens were a welcome change after several days in the "bush". Rooms were large, clean with wonderful outdoor space. Buffet meals had something for everyone with loads of fresh organic vegetables. We didn't get a chance to take advantage of the pool but it looked wonderful. Recommend.

We stayed at the Farm House for 2 nights during a safari through Tanzania. This was my absolute favorite out of all the lodging we had during the trip. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The grounds of the Farm House are beautiful - wonderful flower gardens, great architecture and eating/lounging spaces, and a working coffee plantation. The...

This idyllic venue is worth one visit but maybe not repeated sojourn unless you are swayed in different ways to us. The farms are well kept and well stocked. There is a healthy track to the lodges from the reception/dining areas and are therefore out of reach of the wifi. Rooms are infested with rats? In the roof space. The...

“The grounds are great to explore so a room a short walk away from the main restaurant is fine and gives more chance to explore the farm.”

“The hosts of each lodge anticipated our needs and served us before we even asked. Our trip was amazing due to the service and lodging at every stop! The outside camp fire at the wilderness camps were some of my favorite evenings. The staff at the Farm House and Wilderness Camps were so gracious and attentive. Highly recommend staying at any of the establishments owned by Tanganyika concepts! Exceptional rooms and service!”
