Kisolanza – The Old Farm House

Top choice campground, cottages in Southern Highlands

This gracious 1930s farm homestead 50km southwest of Iringa is fringed by stands of pine and rolling hill country and recommended for its accommodation and outstanding cuisine. There are two camping grounds (overlanders and private vehicles), twin-bedded rooms, cosy wooden chalets, family cottages with fireplace, two luxury garden cottages and a spa. All are spotless, impeccably furnished and excellent value.

The farmhouse also features a bar and a shop selling home-grown vegetables and other produce, and there are many beautiful walks in the area. Buses will drop you at the Kisolanza turn-off, from where it’s a 1.5km walk to the lodge. Advance bookings are advisable for accommodation, but there’s always room for campers.
