Surrounded by an organic garden, Gibb’s Farm in northern Tanzania overlooks the Great Rift Valley and Ngorongoro Forest. A former 1920s coffee farm – it’s now a guesthouse with blooming lawns, a 10-acre organic vegetable farm, a bakery and a dairy. This is a welcoming retreat where you can spend a couple of days to see the flamingos at Lake Manyara National Park or visit the nearby crater.

About Gibb’s Farm

Guests to the area can stop off at Gibb’s Farm and taste the fresh vegetables and fruits at the farm’s restaurant, or they can enjoy the coffee that they’re famous for. But if you really want to enjoy the area, then you can stay for a couple of nights. Gibb’s Farm is perfect for couples and honeymooners; and with its proximity to the Lake Manyara National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater, it’s a perfect stop on your Tanzania safari.

Hospitality is important at Gibb’s Farm. Guests can enjoy farm-to-table fine dining, cocktails outside under the night sky… and when they get back to their room, a lit fire in the fireplace. These little details make Gibb’s Farm such a special place! It’s located about 40 minutes from Lake Manyara National Park, which is a small park with floodplains, woodlands and a large soda lake. It’s here that guests might be able to spot tree-climbing lions, large flocks of flamingos, plains game and a variety of birds.
