“A peaceful wonder of land”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

Amongst small roads and wildlife you will find this Farm House which is extremely well preserved. A lovely garden with its own plants being grown, enchanting bungalows with a fire place, a very quiet setting and very comfortable amenities make this Farm House a very nice place to go. On top, the restaruant's food is of excellent quality and the wooden terrace is just perfect for a refreshment. The pool is also clean and warm.

For me this was one of the best places I have ever stayed. Such a beautiful area with gorgeous gardens. The rooms are chalet style with huge 4 poster beds and a small fireplace, very romantic.
The main building with the thatched roof is just so lovely, we arrived for our evening meal and the Masaii were there performing a traditional song and dance, very entertaining.
The restaurant was lovely and food was great. I was tempted to try a massage but we decided against it so can't comment on the spa facilities.
The only downfall was that I was only there for 1 night! would have loved to stay longer.

The Farm House continues to be one of my favorite places in Karatu and Tanzania. The joy of being able to stay here is only equaled by being able to sit out on the huge deck and watch the sun go down. The rooms are spacious and have great views. Be careful as some are quite a trek from the main areas. However after all the meals and being couped up in vehicles all day, one needs the exercise!!! There is so much you can do whilst here such as swim, bird watching, walk round the coffee farm and vegetable gardens, coffee tour or put your feet up and watch the world go by. This visit i was able to sit on my veranda and watch reed buck graze. One addition I would love to see The farm house do is add tea and coffee making facilities to their rooms.

Room Tip: Need exercise? take a room farther away from the main areas. I definitely recommend that.

We stayed here for 3 night in the middle of our honeymoon whilst on safari. What a great place reminded me of a very hot center parcs with the villa rooms all spread out and having there own names. very clean nice food friendly staff. if you get a chance sit on the veranda outside the main restaruant round one of the log fires and whatch the stars twinkle above you or the amazing thunder storms that were around when we were there. so nice to chill there after a day in a jeep packed lunches were great from there for our trips so much food. Room was spacious and very clean. if you get a chance its nice to walk around the plantation paths.

Hope this helps

On my first trip to the Ngorongoro Crater, I stayed at the Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge. It was a wonderful place with a great view of the crater, great dining room and food. I loved the place. On the next trip, they were fully booked, so my guide, Elias, made arrangements at the Ngorongoro Farm House. I was disappointed, but am always up for a new adventure, so I decided to make the best of it. We arrived there early afternoon, and I could not have been more pleased. The rooms are all separate with little porches and fireplaces. Everything was wonderfully decorated, clean and comfortable. There is a path from the main lodge dining hall to the rooms which takes you though amazing gardens in which much of their produce served in the dining room is grown. The dining hall is large, the food is good, and there is a huge deck that wraps around with a firepit for cocktails and after dinner drinks and stories. The buildlings have thatched roofs blend into the countryside. There is a pool and spa/massage room also available. This is a do not miss. I could move right in and live there. Great stay.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are good. They are large, nicely appointed ensuite rooms with a little porch, big...

Had our last night on our safari here, and did not have any expectation. We were very positively surprised.The name "Farm house" does not do it just.
The separate cabins were very specious and nicely furnished. Our cabin also had a had a terrace with a view.The garden was beautiful. As some have noted, there is walk to the cabins, but porters easily available.

Stayed here one night. The cabins are quite spacious, clean, and comfortable. My cabin (Swala - "antelope") was some distance from the main lodge where meals are served. However, that did not bother me. I enjoyed the walk after being in a safari vehicle all day. In addition, the grounds are beautifully landscaped so the walk was very pleasant. The food was average. It is buffet style. The salad selections were very good but the main courses were sketchy. There is entertainment offered prior to dinner with traditional singing and dancing. Audience members are pulled in to the show. A pleasant stay, overall.
