A sanctuary for the senses in Tanzania, Gibb's Farm

Gibb’s Farm spreads a deeply felt sense of wellbeing and tranquillity within a warm, rustic inn environment on the forested outer-slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater. The gentle rhythm of Gibb’s Farm offer an immersive retreat for the traveller on safari to Tanzania. Surrounded by the rich traditions of East African life, share in the eternal sense of history and community.

Established in the early 1900s by a German Duke as a coffee plantation, founders James Gibb and his wife, Margaret bought the farm after World War II and established the first accommodation facilities in the 1970s, making them the oldest guesthouse in northern Tanzania. The farm now extends over 80 acres with organic vegetables, fresh fruit, rows of coffee, abundant herbs, a flourishing farmyard, intimate cottages and forested grounds. The abundant gardens provide organic inspiration for the farm’s chefs and produce is used in an array of culinary delights.

Discover an oasis replete with natural beauty, nourishing food and sustainable living experienced through two 2-bedroom guesthouses and seventeen 1-bedroom guest cottages. Beyond the coffee fields lies a truly awe-inspiring World Heritage Site and game-rich safari destination, the Ngorongoro Crater. Spend time viewing this immense natural phenomenon, which forms part of an ancient migratory route for wildlife. Delve further into Tanzania and experience a sense of place with a bicycle ride through the back roads of Karatu. Learn about the local Iraqw culture by visiting a local family or explore the centuries-old waterfalls and elephant caves on our back doorstep.

Each thing Gibb’s Farm does is a step towards creating a sanctuary for the senses, where guests, the team and the animals feel nourished and content.
