Once the home and coffee plantation of a 19th-century German settler, this beautifully renovated property facing the Oldeani volcano now consists of three camps of 50 spacious cottages (20 suites and 30 standard rooms) built and decorated in old colonial style. Cottages and the thatch-roof main farmhouse are set in lovely gardens only 5 km (3.1 mi) from the Ngorongoro Lolduare gate. You'll sleep in a large, airy bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and veranda. The main farmhouse
has a bar, library, restaurant, and lounge. The food is delicious and uses lots of organic vegetables and herbs from the farm's own gardens. If you're looking for some downtime, spend some time by the pool or just wander round the gardens and spot birds. Excursions include trips to the crater and conservation area as well as face-to-face encounters with local communities (not included in the quoted price).
