Gibb's Farm is located on the forested outside slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania, overlooking the centuries old Great Rift Valley. It is the ideal base from which to explore the Crater and Lake Manyara.
Named Best Safari Lodge and #5 of The Top 100 Hotels in the Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards 2017 readers' survey, this working Tanzanian coffee farm was established in the late 1920's and refurbished as a warm, rustic luxury inn. 21 well-appointed cottages overlook the magnificent gardens where guests can relax and savour the tranquil environment.
Discover a sense of wellbeing, tranquillity and history, deeply rooted in East African culture and community, a welcome retreat for a few days’ respite while on safari or extended vacation.
Each cottage features a unique theme, richly appointed with eucalyptus floors and handcrafted furniture. A cottage with a common living area and two ensuite bedrooms is available for families or couples travelling together.
Beautiful architectural details, such as the farmhouse’s original wooden beams and colourful artworks, are inspired by local African artists. The farm’s organic vegetable and terraced flower gardens provide a wonderful setting for afternoon tea or a quiet walk to impart a sense of contentment.
Gibb’s Farm’s rustic charm and gracious accommodation provides an ideal sanctuary for a few day’s respite while on safari, an extended vacation or honeymoon getaway.
