The Old Farm House, Kisolanza
Set in the crisp, cool altitude of Tanzania’s scenic Southern Highlands, Kisolanza has been the home of the Ghaui family since the 1930’s.Originally planted with tobacco, it is still a fully working farm with cattle, sheep, and a range of crops. The Cape to Cairo road that weaves the length of Africa passes directly through our home, and Nicky, the youngest of the Ghaui siblings, set up “The Old Farm House” to make the most of this ideal stopover spot for travelers - a perfect pause between Zanzibar and Malawi. The Old Farm House has grown to include a whole range of accommodation from luxurious cottages to bush camping, plus an exceptional restaurant and bar, a farm shop, and a spa. The aim remains the same as ever: to provide a haven that caters for all the creature comforts a guest could desire, such as hot showers, delicious food, a warm clean bed, and the welcoming feeling of a "home away from home" – plus a whole lot of luxurious little extras on the side that make it unique, and so much more than just a stop along the way. The Ghaui family has been in East Africa for over 100 years and are happy to share their knowledge with visitors.
