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.

2016 coming to an end

2016 is approaching its end. The TanzanIce Farm team wants to thank our guests for staying with us. Your stay has helped us to continue to grow and support our community. Thanks for all the great reviews – they stimulate us to do even better. Welcome to Tanzania.

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.

 

Visiting the twins

Elisabet´s (the previous chef at Tanzanice Farm) children are well. Anna, Vidar and Resty went for a visit today. On the way they passed by Akwelina´s shop. She is one of the women who attended the Women Power course. We thank all the people who have helped us to support Elisabet and her children – it is a pleasure to see how the kids are thriving.
A short video from our trip is to be found on our Facebook page.

Onions on TanzaNice Farm

Today was a big day at TanzaNice Farm. Mathias Elitumaini and Olivia planted onion seeds in a nursery and in 4 weeks time onion seedlings will be harvested and again planted in an area where they will be watered by a drip irrigation system. The drip irrigation system is in the process of being installed and must of course be ready in time.
