Sandwiched in between our wild stay at Maramboi Tented Camp and camping in the Serengeti was the lush mountain retreat of Ngorogoro Farm House. We arrived at Ngorogoro Farm House after our dusty, hot morning with the Maasai, and a green tropical garden area set with lunch and wine was a welcome site.  This lodge emanated relaxation, and we did well to enjoy pool time, a long nap, sundowner cocktails and snacks, and live entertainment by an open fire. Our cabins were spacious and simple, with comfy beds, located down a long walk surrounded by flowers and gorgeous views. The property contained an organic farm where much of the delicious food was sourced from. Made-to-order stir fries at dinner combined local flavors and ingredients to make healthy, filling fare.

Staff at the lodge was incredible, as was the staff everywhere we stayed in Tanzania. Everyone went out of their way to take excellent care of us and made us feel at home. We only had one night at the Ngorogoro Farm House, but I would love to return to spend several days, lie by the pool, take the garden tour, and spend more time in the schools in Karatu. If you couldn’t tell from my past posts, Tanzania has a special hold on my heart. Thank you for letting me share that with you.
