Mpingo Farm Stay
Mpingo Farm Stay is a friendly African-style Farm Stay situated only one hour drive from Dar Es salaam City in the scenic village of Vikawe.
The village is located midway between Dar Es Salaam (38 km north of Dar Es Salaam) and Bagamoyo (32 km south of Bagamoyo).
Our location is completely off the tourist track, making the Farm Stay a unique experience for people who really want to see and live real Tanzanian life, while retaining western style comfort. All our rooms are ensuite and traditionally decorated using locally crafted wooden furniture. Each room has a private veranda with views over the Vikawe Hills.
During your stay at the Mpingo you can tour the surrounding areas with our knowledgeable guide, Peter, visit the local village, or walk down to the Mpigi River. You can also choose to simply do nothing and relax with a good book or play one of our board games.
Our restaurant serves delicious food, prepared according to traditional Swahili recipes, using only locally sourced ingredients. The chef is knowledgeable about special dietary requirements and, given notice, can easily cater to your specific requirements.
