Location and Description
Gibb’s Farm provides a welcome stay on any safari, and a base from which to enjoy the many activities available in the foothills of the Ngorongoro Forest, The Ngorongoro Crater and Manyara National Park. Even if your stay is short, find time for a gentle walk or a tour of our gardens. Gibb’s Farm hugs nearly a mile of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, part of a 3,200 square mile reserve. Ideally located, the Farm lies half way between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater, near the village of Karatu.
Gibbs Farm offers 20 twin rooms with ensuite bathrooms set among the gardens. The main facilities, consisting of a sitting room, reading room, dining room (which serves fresh, home-cooked meals), bar and gift shop are situated in the old farmhouse.
Dining and Cuisine
Gibb’s Farm’s organic fruit and vegetable garden provides the ingredients needed for three healthy, fresh home-cooked meals a day. Start your day with a cup of freshly roasted Gibb’s Farm coffee; move onto a wide buffet selection of fresh fruit, fresh juice, yogurt and homemade granola and muffins; and top it off with a hot cooked plate of fresh eggs, bacon, sausage and pancakes served at your table.
Our famous Farm-Style buffet lunch includes wood-oven baked bread, a soup, a wide selection of savory meat and vegetable pies, quiches, fresh and creative salads as well as a few traditional African dishes. Save room for Gibb’s Farm’s legendary rhubarb crumble, chocolate mousse, rice pudding and chocolate pudding.
For dinner, a four-course meal is served at your table.
