Property's Favorite Review
The Acacia Lodge was an oasis of calm and loveliness on a hot and dusty trip. The personal service we received made us feel like millionaires. The cottages were large, clean, and provided us with every personal amenity we could possibly need. The food was good and plentiful, and the organic garden from which they presumably got their fruits and vegetables was a wonderful surprise.

My wife and I came for our honeymoon. With the help of Frank as our butler, the experience was truly magical. They housekeeping staff and Frank were on another level of customer service; it was fantastic. I highly recommend anyone to go there and ask for Frank as well as Frank’s Maasai activity which was truly informative. A must stay in Tanzania. Best accommodation we have had during our honeymoon.

We have been traveling all over Kenya and Tanzania for 2 weeks. This has been the best experience we have had. The service is second to none. Frank was our personal butler. He took care of us at the bar and all of our meals. The food was incredible. Not able to say enough good things about this property. I wish we had stayed longer! Thank you again Frank.

We had a excellent stay at Acacia Farm Lodge. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they were very keen for us to feel that it was our home. The food was excellent and plenty of it! The trip round the coffee plantation and kitchen garden is well worth the 30mins it takes - they are very proud of the fact they grow most of their own fruit and vegetables!

Acacia Farms is a beautiful, quaint resort where the staff make you feel like family from the moment you arrive. It all starts with their heartfelt welcome song, where the staff happily greet you. The bar/lounge area is beautifully decorated and it’s a wonderful place to have a cocktail and share stories with the other guests. The food was outstanding and the dinner ambiance is 2nd to none. The staff anticipated our every need, especially our butler, Martin. You won’t be disappointed with your experience.

The Acacia Farm Lodge was an incredible experience after a week of safari! We were welcomed by the staff with a beautiful song and immediately felt at home. The cottages are luxurious and clean, and the farm to table meals on the gorgeous deck were absolutely delicious. However, the most wonderful part of this beautiful lodge is the people. Everyone was friendly and kind- special shout out to Martin, who felt like family after our 2 night stay. Thank you for such a beautiful experience- I ABSOLUTELY recommend Acacia Farm Lodge and hope to return in the future.
