Ngorongoro Farm House

The Ngorongoro Farm House is a good value option when visiting the Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara area. The lodge is set in the coffee plantations of with lush hill sides and lovely views. The lodge really feels like a operating farm and is slightly more rustic than some of the other properties in the area but is priced respectively.

The lodge is located in the Karatu area which is equal distance from Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara which serves as the perfect location for a driving safari starting in Arusha.

Ngorongoro Farm House - The Facts 

The Ngorongoro Farm House faces the Oldeani Volcano and only 5 km’s from the Ngorongoro Lolduare gate making the lodge a perfect stopover as part of your northern Tanzania safari circuit when visiting Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater.

The main lodge area is under a larger thatched structure with bar and dining area where all meals are taken. There are 52 cottages and suites in the whole property, the cottages are spread out among the coffee plantations however it doesn’t feel like a lodge of this size somehow.

Ngorongoro Farm House is a ‘drive in’ lodge which means you need to bring your own guide and vehicle from Arusha as the lodge only supplies the accommodation and not the safari activities. Typically a two night stay works well here spending the first day game driving in Lake Manyara and the second day game driving in Ngorongoro Crater. You can also use the lodge for further excursions to see the Hadzabe tribe or nearby Lake Eyasi.
