Gibb’s Farm is located in the Karatu area of northern Tanzania. It is a superb base from which to explore Rift Valley, including Ngorongoro, Manyara and the surrounding villages.

Gibb’s Farm offers better accommodation and value than the large hotels on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater.

Gibb’s Farm is set among coffee plantations on the edge of the Ngorongoro hills.

This working farm is nearly a hundred years old! The central part of the lodge is in the main farmhouse, with a reading lounge, dining area, bar and library. The 17 rooms are set around the grounds. Although there are standard cottages as well as luxurious ‘farm cottages’, we tend to use the farm cottages, as we believe that other properties in the area offer far better options than the standard cottages.

The grounds at Gibb’s are what really make this property – they are beautiful and well established, a perfect place to relax. Guests who feel more active, can walk into the neighbouring woods or down to the coffee plantations below. There are over 200 species of bird, so it is an ideal place for birdwatching.

We use Gibb’s Farm as a two-night base from which to explore the surrounding area. Lake Manyara is within 30 minutes’ drive, while Ngorongoro is only an hour away.

"I've always believed that Gibbs is the best of the coffee farm lodges around Karatu. Classy and very well run this is a property that's hard to beat."
