Gibb's Farm hugs nearly a mile of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, part of a 3,200 square mile reserve. Ideally located, the Farm lies half way between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater, near the village of Karatu.

Built in 1929, the Farmhouse has hardly changed, retaining the charm of a well looked-after private house. Cozy living rooms and reading corners are just steps away from the dining room, bar and gift shop.

Fireplaces fill the Farmhouse with warmth and historical charm. Just outside, a sprawling verandah and floral garden invite sweeping views of the valley below the Farm.

Gibb's Farm provides a welcome stay on any safari, and a base from which to enjoy the many activities available in the foothills of the Ngorongoro Forest, The Ngorongoro Crater and Manyara National Park.

Rooms & Suites:

Gibb's Farm is set among formal English gardens, the Farmhouse and 20 ensuite cottages are the heart of a working farm.

The newly upgraded Farm Cottages echo the original style of Gibb's Farm guest cottages, Building on A Tradition. Cottages feature rich wooden floors and classic interiors with wraparound windows. En-suite garden bathrooms offer twin basins, luxurious bathtubs and indoor/ outdoor showers. A wraparound fireplace warms the bathroom and living area.

Food & Wine:

Gibb's Farm's organic fruit and vegetable garden provides the ingredients needed for three healthy, fresh home-cooked meals a day. Start your day with a cup of freshly roasted Gibb's Farm coffee; move onto a wide buffet selection of fresh fruit, fresh juice, yogurt and homemade granola and muffins; and top it off with a hot cooked plate of fresh eggs, bacon, sausage and pancakes served at your table.

Their famous Farm-Style buffet lunch includes wood-oven baked bread, a soup, a wide selection of savory meat and vegetable pies, quiches, fresh and creative salads as well as a few traditional African dishes. Save room for Gibb's Farm's legendary rhubarb crumble, chocolate mousse, rice pudding and chocolate pudding.
