Gibb's Farm

Discover 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.

Gibbs Farm offers 19 en suite farm cottages each with a unique theme and beautifully appointed with hand-crafted furniture,indoor and outdoor showers, a fireplace and private veranda. The main farmhouse, reminiscent of an old English country home, contains a charming living room, 2 dining rooms, outside verandahs, a gazebo and gift boutique. Outside there is spacious patio and pool area surrounded by lush, soothing gardens and sweeping views of the valley. A unique feature is the traditional Massai style spa using traditional healing methods.
