Explore Tanzania’s world-class safari destinations from the romantic Acacia Farm Lodge, where luxurious facilities meet old-world hospitality in an outstandingly beautiful setting. This tranquil sanctuary on a working coffee farm located high on the spectacular Great Rift’s escarpment area commands panoramic views of the Karatu farmlands and the nearby Ngorongoro forest area. It is a perfect base for a ‘northern circuit’ safari or to treat yourself to sheer luxury to round off your African bush experience. Just 15 minutes’ drive west of Ngorongoro Crater gate, 30 minutes’ from the Lake Manyara National Park gate, and 20 minutes’ drive from Lake Manyara airstrip, Acacia Farm Lodge couldn’t be better situated for visitors to Tarangire and Lake Manyara national parks on one side and Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Serengeti National Park on the other.
Each of the 28 spacious, air-conditioned chalets dotted through the expansive gardens is a luxurious blend of simplicity and opulence, with a private lounge and en-suite bedroom, where romantic mosquito nets enclose the king-size or twin beds. Amenities include minibar, coffee station, flat-screen plasma TV with satellite channels, intercom and international telephone line, Internet connection, hairdryer and digital safe. Your private deck is the perfect place to relax and take in the sweeping views and spectacular African sunsets. Families can choose interconnected rooms or an extra bed or cot in the main bedroom, and all the rooms are wheelchair accessible. The excellent butler service ensures that your every need is taken care of.
Enjoy fine dining with award-winning wines outdoors on the verandah under the African night sky, or in the elegant dining rooms. The ‘Modern African’ cuisine uses delicious fresh organic produce grown in the farm’s own vegetable garden. In the heat of the day relax on a sunbed beside the swimming pool in the gorgeous gardens, or make the most of the well-equipped fitness centre, massage room or beauty salon. If you’re feeling adventurous, take a nature walk, hike or farm tour with the in-house naturalists; a Karatu town tour; or a cultural experience for insight into the way of life of local Iraqw or Maasai tribes.
Luxurious accommodation, delicious food, spectacular views and delightfully friendly yet unobtrusive service in an authentic African farm setting make Acacia Farm Lodge a top-notch Tanzania experience.
