Gibb’s Farm is one of northern Tanzania’s oldest guesthouses. Located half way between Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater, the farm house was built by German settlers in 1929 and has breathtaking views over a coffee plantation. At once rustic and luxurious, the award-winning lodge is a peaceful and rejuvenating sanctuary to stay in while on safari in Tanzania and a great base from which to explore the surrounding wilderness areas. It has 20 charming well-appointed cottages set in a beautiful garden where guests can soak up the energy and rhythm of nature, and is well-known for its gracious hospitality and delicious food. Gibb’s Farm is a special place to stay.
