Overview

Farm House Valley Lodge is a beautiful 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.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
