Leopards are majestic animals, they are great hunters who run fast when hunting, climb trees to eat and relax afterwards. You cannot but respect them. Leopards are to be found in Serengeti and Ngorongoro, the National Parks next to TanzanIce Farm.
We have built a new house and renovated our old house, now offering travelers a very comfortable accommodation in an exceptional environment close to the locals. All rooms have private bathrooms with hot showers and the dining and living have a beautiful view over farmland as well as a stunning view towards the green hills of Ngorongoro crater. Our staff provides good and healthy food, produced on the farm. TanzanIce Farm is the perfect place to stay and take day-trips to the wonders in our vicinity.
After evaluating all possible ways of pumping water up from our borehole we decided to bring 3 phase electricity to our farm. The implementation is challenging and several strong men had to work in harmony, which they did quite well.
TanzanIce Farm is proud of taking part in the WOMEN POWER educational program which we have been running since 2015. Here we just finished a meeting making rules for a micro-financing fund which we were able to establish with financial support from Alheimsaudur at Virding in Iceland. We wish the women good luck.
Ol Doinyo Lengai (The Mountain of God) is an active volcano in Tanzania. A beautiful mountain close to Lake Natron. Part of the TanzanIce Farm team visited the place recently. The aim was to climb the mountain but in a temperature of almost 40 degrees Celsius it was impossible. We make another attempt in a cooler time.
After weeks of demolition we are not starting the re-construction. TanzanIce Farm will have a totally new look in a few weeks’ time.
All our rooms will be self-contained with access to a nice dining area and living room. But the stunning view towards Ngorongoro, one of the most famous National Parks with wild-life and untouched nature, will be the same.
The rainy season is delayed so we, the TanzanIce Team, must use water responsibly – as we in fact always do – but now even more so. We are drip irrigating our carrots giving each plant droplets of water every day while waiting for the rain. This is Friday afternoon with the locals singing in our neighborhood. A short video on YouTube to demonstrate the technique:
The kids in our neighborhood are really excited to say hi to guests coming to TanzanIce Farm. Karibu mzungu (welcome white person).
The WOMEN POWER course starts tomorrow. For the next two weeks we will have these wonderful people staying at TanzanIce Farm running the project (www.womenpowerafrica.org).
We are proud of being a partner in this great project, which aims at empowering women and help them to improve their self-confidence and start up new businesses in order to improve their income and livelihood.
TanzanIce Farm is building a new house with two spacious rooms and large balconies to enjoy the fabulous view towards the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The architect is our Canadian friend Alan Roy. Despite new rooms we will continue to preserve our uniqueness of being a small, friendly and personal provider of accommodation in a unique farming environment, exceptionally well located for travellers who want to enjoy the wonders of the area; amazing animal live in nearby national parks (Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Lake Manyara and Tarangire) and remaining unique cultures of local tribes such as the Hadzabe people at Lake Eyasi and the Maasai people.
