Simba Farm has been in our family since 1981. We are a working farm with 7,000 acres of rolling hills situated in West Kilimanjaro, offering breathtaking views of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Maasai steps and Mt Meru. We grow wheat and barley for the local Tanzanian market and we also export seed beans overseas. Tourism is our newest subdivision at Simba Farm, helping to promote Agro-tourism within the local community.
Simba Farm is accessible to visitors and guests all year round. The dry season happens between the months of November and February where temperatures can reach up to 35 degrees, followed by the long rains starting in March and lasting up to May or June. June and July are our cold winter months where an open fire is cosy and most welcome at night.
Being at the foothills of West Kilimanjaro, at 1,700 metres above sea level and nestled between national forest and open plains, the temperatures in early evenings and night time can get frosty quickly.
The ‘Old Guest House’ was built in the 1920s and maintains its original rustic charm and warmth to date. The guest house has five bedrooms with a spacious living room, and is surrounded by lush gardens. There are also two country cottages and two garden rooms with private verandas and fireplaces. We pride ourselves on catering for every need, with all meals being prepared using fresh vegetables from our own gardens. We also provide a relaxing, child friendly atmosphere with lots of activities to keep your little ones entertained.
Simba Farm also benefits from a recently built swimming pool for everyone to use & enjoy. Overlooking the farm, the pool has breathtaking views of Mt. Meru so sit and relax by the pool and enjoy an unforgettable African sunset.
Please note that whilst we do love dogs, and have several at the farm ourselves, guests are requested to leave their furry friends at home.
