also known as The Old Farm House
, is located in the Mufindi
area of Southern Tanzania
Set back about 1km from the main TanZam highway 52km southwest of Iringa, this lodge serves as a popular overnight stop for long-distance overlanders.
Until 2005 the guest-house was centred on the old farmhouse itself, which was really quite charming. In more recent years the whole facility has been moved to the old campground location, with purpose-built restaurant and bar set in pleasant gardens.
Of the four different room types, the Farm Suites are really very luxurious, whilst at the other end the Stable Block offers simple billets with shared ablutions. There is also a campground.
Kisolanza Farm remains a pleasant and efficient place to overnight, although during our brief visit we certainly felt that it has now become more of a lodge than a more personable farm-stay.
