Gibb's Farm

Gibb's Farm is a working farm located on the forested slopes of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The farm lies half way between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater making it an ideal base from which to enjoy either park. Built in 1929, the farmhouse has hardly changed, retaining the charm of a well looked-after private house and providing a welcome respite for an active safari.

Review of Gibb's Farm

David Fox

What a magical place to recharge batteries. The views exquisite from all directions and the accommodation was very comfortable and well thought out. The food selection was wonderful and again the staff couldn't be more helpful. The drive to Ngorongoro Crater was most interesting and the Crater itself an eye opener with the quantities of game & birds
