Description - Hotel

Mpingo Farm Stay is a friendly, Tanzanian Style farm stay located between Dar es Salaam and Bagamoyo towns, roughly half way between the two in the village of Vikawe. The farm stay offers easy access to the attractions of both towns, while being away from the hustle and bustle of the city and allowing complete relaxation

Our cottages are all furnished in traditional african style, with hand made furniture and ensuite bathrooms. Each cottage has its own veranda from which to enjoy the view across the Vikawe Hills

Our restaurant prepares gourmet meals using locally sourced produce to prepare traditional Swahili dishes and international cuisine. We can easily cater for any special dietary requirements if given advance notice.

From Mpingo Farm Stay you can immerse yourself in traditional village life by going for cultural tours or walking to nearby small holder farms. You can also simply relax with a good book in our lounge area.
