Farm House Valley Lodge is a beautiful and brand new farm lodge in an excellent location for visiting Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara. Based on a 500 acre working coffee farm, the lodge boasts outstanding views across rolling hills to the Oldeani volcano in the Rift Valley. Most people use the lodge as a base for visiting the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater, however low key activities are also on offer, including short farm tours or treks with Maasai guides.
The lodge itself has 26 spacious standard rooms, each of which comes with en-suite shower room, outside seating area, 24 hour electricity, internal telephone and charging points. The rooms are scattered around the gardens and have good pathways to the main living area. The main lodge has a cosy, farm-house feel with dining and lounge areas and a lovely (unheated) swimming pool with views over the Oldeani volcano.
Breakfast and dinners are served in the restaurant or on the veranda. Wherever possible, home grown vegetables are used in the menus. There's a nightly camp-fire for atmospheric pre-dinner drinks, or guests can sit back and relax in the spacious lounge.
Farm House Valley Lodge is a great base for families, offering reasonable value, easy access to the Ngorongoro Crater and, above all, a relaxing retreat with plenty of space for children to let off steam. Guided walks and visits to the working farms are possible and the swimming pool is a real draw. There are 2 family suites, each consisting of two inter-connected tents on raised wooden platforms with en-suite shower rooms and fans. Both have outdoor seating areas with views of the Rift Valley & Lake Manyara. There are also 2 standard family rooms. Note that the lodge is unfenced and while it's unlikely that animals will approach humans, parents must keep children under constant supervision.
Farm House Valley Lodge is a relaxing retreat offering a wide range of activities and good value for money in a beautiful location.

It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.
It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.
Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!
My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.
Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)
Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
Level of service, quality of food throughout
