We are located in Arusha, Northern Tanzania, in the natural paradise of the vast highlands between Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro. Our farm elevation is 1450m above sea level.

We have a biogas plant on our farm that helps us produce gas for cooking and electricity. 100% of the energy the hostel uses comes from renewable sources and 80% of it is generated right at the farm. We use both solar and biogas energy and we heat our water with biogas heating system that produces zero CO2 emissions.

The space
We have cows on the farm for milk, yoghurt and biogas, goats for milk and fertilizer, chickens for eggs and fertilizer. Everything at the farm is organically grown with the use of cow manure (biogas waste) as fertilizer and herbs for treatment of plants.

Here’s a list of what we grow at the farm:

• 16 types/varieties of bananas that can be differentiated while on a farm tour
• 3 types of avocados such as hass, fuerte, and kienyeji (local) avocados
• Arabica Coffee which is famously grown in Arusha and Kilimanjaro in rich volcanic soil above 900 to 1800m above sea level.
• Vegetables like spinach, lettuce, okra, celery, chayote, red and green chilli, pepper, tomatoes, leeks, mchicha, egg plants and tree tomato
• Herbs like mint, sage, rosemary, parsley, dill, oregano, basil, chives, thyme, cinnamon and lemon grass
• 4 types of Passion fruits (purple, yellow, giant passion fruit and sweet granadilla)
• We also grow other fruits like papaya, mangoes, guavas, soursop and jack fruit (seasonal)
Farm tour can be given while staying with us free of charge.

I come from the Maasai tribe in Tanzania. I am an organic farmer and safari operator in Arusha . I run a 5 acre farm close to Arusha in a small village called Ambureni.I grow 16 varieties of bananas,coffee,vegetables and fruits like avocados,mangoes,passionfruits,jackfruit and papayas.

100% of the energy used in my farm comes from renewable sources mainly biofuel(produced directly at the farm),solar and hydro. In 2018 I built a biogas plant in my farm that can convert cow/human/kitchen waste into gas and electricity that in turn is used for cooking and light at the farm.
My Airbnb home stay was featured in an NPR story and AFK Insider.
To read the stories you can search for my name "Godwin Ndosi'' online and follow the links to the article.

My vision is to live a full, meaningful, and thriving life. I stay inspired and empowered by helping and connecting with others, using my character strengths, and following my passions. Love, kindness, and compassion are what’s important in life. The rest is commentary.
I welcome you in Arusha,Tanzania and i hope you will have a comfortable stay at the farm.
