TanzanIce Farm construction but the same stunning view

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.

Responsible use of water

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:

WOMEN POWER COURSE

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.

New twin house for our guests

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.

Bull elephants in Tarangirie

Elephants are extremely intelligent animals and have memories that span many years. They form deep family bonds and can easily display signs of grief, joy, anger and play. The males leave the family unit between the ages of 12 to 15 years, living with other males or alone.

New government census from Tanzania revealed that the elephant population has declined by 60% in just five years – between 2009 and 2014 the number dropped from 109,051 to 43,330.

Much more must be done to protect these intelligent and beautiful creatures who live in our vicinity such as in Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Tarangirie, where this photo is taken by Anna Elisabet.
