We had a remarkable stay at this lodge. The rooms were extremely comfortable with comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, and beautiful balconies to enjoy the well kept gardens that surround the property. The pool was in a beautiful garden and was perfect for a cool dip after a long hot day in the car. The kids were very happy to have a place to play for awhile. The rooms had every comfort that you would expect in an upscale hotel in North America. The staff was amazing and made sure that we had everything that we could possibly need. The turn down service was beautiful each night with flowers that graced our room. We celebrated a birthday while we were there and they made sure that the room was decorated and that we had a great birthday celebration at dinner. The food was family style and was chef quality. There is nothing that we did not like about this hotel and we highly recommend it to others.

After our successful Ngorongoro crater visit, Gosheni arranged us to stay one night in the Acacia Farm Lodge. This is such a beautiful lodge, with everything kept in pristine condition and service maintained in high standard even during the corona virus pandemic. Staffs are all very friendly and always ready to help. Food is very delicious, with freshly baked pastries and salad materials from their own vegetable garden. It’s a shame we were the only guests for the night because of the pandemic. Highly recommend this lodge.

Mambo!! Our family spent one night in this beautiful lodge. It's not only a very well located Lodge close to the parks... it's also... A very worm welcome from Pascal and all the staff. Amazing environment in the middle of a production of bananas, coffee.... Very nice and comfortable bedrooms. Very nice pool. We spent a wonderful moment in the evening talking with Pascal who shared with us his love for his country and amazing experiences he had in the parks, in front of a nice wood fire. The food at dinner and breakfast were great! A huge thank you for this stay finishing with an emotional and unforgettable "goodbye song" from all the staff when we left! We strongly recommend this Lodge! you will not be disappointed! everything is done to make you feel happy and relaxed! Asante Sana to all of you!!
