Really nice campsite although I would highly recommend upgrading to the rooms rather than tenting. Delicious hot chocolates at the bar - it can get a little cold up there so this is very welcome! You can also get amarula hot chocolates which are incredible and a delicious brownie. The hot water needs to be turned on, but once it's... More

I came in a bit group right at dusk on a cold, cloudy, and rainy day in the wet season. Richard greeted us and made us feel very welcome despite the atmosphere. I had joined he group for only a few days as I had a chance opportunity to meet up with a good friend who I see rarely because... More

We camped at The Old Farm House (Kisolanza) for three nights and didn't want to leave. The camp manager Richard couldn't have been more hospitable, helpful, or welcoming. A spacious newly thatched palapa with picnic table at the campsite was useful for cooking under cover. The ablutions were spotless and the hot showers were much appreciated, as was the efficient...

If you are even remotely close to this region, you should visit the Old Farm House. The food was some of the best i"ve had in Tanzania. The owners personally greet all the guests and make them feel welcome. The houses are really nicely designed (some feel like hobbit houses!) with individual furniture, great beds and fireplaces. There are a... More

Lovely shady spot for my tent and, although basic, clean comfortable stable accommodation for children and their mum. Cake with our tea a real treat after a hard push from Mozi and hours on the road. Absolutely magical atmosphere created by lamps in the mud ruin restaurant. A delicious three course dinner. Shared ablutions spotless with hot showers. I loved... More

We stayed in the Old Farm House with our children on our way to and from Ruaha National Park. The Old Farm House is a quiet place with helpful and friendly staff. The family cottages are large, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. The food served at dinner and breakfast was fresh and very tasty. Our children enjoyed staying near a farm... More

The Old Farm House just south of Iringa is really a very welcoming place. Everything is clean, the showers are hot, the staff is very friendly. At the reception they sell fresh produce. I'll keep this place in mind for future trips.

this is the best place to stay around Iringa. It is located on theroad iringa-mbeya, about 50 km south of Iringa. It is good for camping, staying in the beautiful cottages or only having breakfast or lunch while travelling. Food is very good, tasty and healthy, staff is kind and very well trained. It is also possible to buy meat/eggs/vegetables... More

We stayed in the lovely intimate cottage in June 2013 and it was a real treat. The cottage is large, private, very comfortable and offers a lounge, a very comfy large bed (with a mozzy net), and an en-suite bathroom with bath and lots of hot water - great after the long drive from Arusha. We were delighted to get... More
