Ngorongoro Farm House is a fantastic base from which to explore all the surrounding attractions whilst offering good value for money to-boot.
The lodge is set on a working farm (hence the name) and is ideally situated halfway between the attractions of Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara whilst offering activities locally that include mountain biking, hiking and cultural visits.
We describe this lodge more as a rural / farming destination from which one visits the surrounding and local attractions from a central base. A great destination for couple, families and small groups of friends traveling together.
Offering 52 huge cottage rooms and suites decorated in local materials and styled in a modern rustic way with wood beamed ceilings and concrete floors.
Four-poster beds, comfy couches and reading table, a central fireplace, and a veranda overlooking the farm and gardens. En-suite functional bathrooms lead off the bedrooms and offer guests flushing toilets, shower and basins.
