Description

This estate is the second oldest farm in the Vwawa region, founded in 1989 as Camaro Farm. It was passed to Tanzanian ownership from it’s German founders in 2017, and renamed after a famous chief of the local Nzunda family or tribe. More coffee was planted, favoring compact ‘dwarf’ varietals of Kent Bourbon varietals, refreshing old crops and doubling cultivation up to 130 acres. The farm benefits from being surrounded by natural reserves and good internal infrastructure, but are challenged by inconsistent rain fall and the amount of labor needed to improve what, for Tanzania, is a large farm.
