Gibbs Farm is a historic farmhouse set on the outer slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater. Surrounded by lush forest and tropical gardens, the farmhouse is a soothing sanctuary, offering a variety of experiences. The farm was created in the early 1900’s as a working coffee plantation, before being established as the oldest guesthouse in northern Tanzania in the 1970’s. Guests are encouraged to explore the farm; learn about the coffee-making process, tour the organic gardens and assist in milking the cows. For those looking to experience Tanzanian wildlife, Gibbs Farm also operates full and half-day safari drives to nearby Lake Manyara, Lake Eyasi and the Ngorongoro Crater. Guests can also birdwatch from the hotel, where the gardens are home to over 200 bird species. There are 19 cottages, each uniquely decorated with characterful artwork and furnishings. The cottages have a private terrace, a separate living area and an outdoor shower. Gibbs Farm is a unique guesthouse with a wide variety of experiences to offer, and a lovely addition to any visit to Tanzania.
