Janet Short

"We also stayed at the Ngorongoro Farmhouse. A lovely setting, huge rooms and wonderful food and some local entertainment before dinner. The wine was twice the price of every where else that we stayed."

"The room was amazing and the setting and gardens were superb.There was an extensive choice of food at dinner time, all on a serve yourself basis so we could try as many different dishes as we fancied. There was a fire pit outside on the terrace for a last drink before bed. The only disappointment was the background muzak playing at dinner time! Thank goodness we had some African music at breakfast time."

"Actually we never stayed there, we stayed in the Ngorongoro Lodge, which was great! "
