Ngorongoro Farm House is set on a 500-acre coffee farm just west of the market town of Karatu. A stay here provided a chance to experience real red-road rural Africa, with walking, mountain biking and cultural visits. This was our base for our cultural visit to a Maasai village.
The main building, covered with an elegant thatched roof, contains the lounge, restaurant and a big deck which offers spectacular views of the Oldeani Volcano.
This was such a beautiful place to stay and a great place to relax (we all had massages) after an early day exploring Ngorongoro Crater. The gardens were breath taking. They grow all their own organic veggies. The rooms were cottage style, with a fireplace, and patio that overlooked a wilderness area. We had a family room which consisted of 3 very comfortable double beds. Our cottage was Temba.
Every day they offer a coffee tour on their farm hosted by a local tribe member who tends to the farm. Clifton enjoyed the tour and the local coffee. There nightly entertainment on the huge deck for Sundowners. Dinner is served buffet style and was very good. It’s not often you get to eat home made cuisine using the dairy products and fresh vegetables produced by the farm all year round.
