Day 11 - Tembo Fires and farewell

  • Ngorongoro Highlands (map)

This morning stretch your legs with a stroll around the gardens and enjoy the quiet atmosphere, the abundance of beautiful flora and the views out into the surrounding highlands. You may choose to spend your time relaxing on the verandah with tea, or opt for a biking tour of the village, bird watching, coffee roasting, and more.

Join Adam today for a final informal lecture before tucking into the generous buffet lunch made almost entirely of ingredients generated on the farm.

This evening, we will relax at the Tembo Fire, an open-air sitting area nestled at the foot of the organic gardens. The tradition of the nightly campfire began as a purely practical measure to ensure that elephants - or "tembo" in Swahili - are not tempted to feast in the organic gardens at night. It soon became a popular place to sit and relax at the end of the day. Now, with a comfortable seating area and full bar, the Tembo Fire makes a wonderful place for conversation, storytelling or stargazing.

It’s time to say farewell, as we enjoy our last dinner as a group before heading to Arusha and our respective homes. From white-sand beaches to wildebeest to savannahs to bomas to the brightest stars… it’s been quite the trip through Tanzania.
