Gibb’s Farm

Gibb’s Farm is a high quality lodge situated on a wonderful historic coffee estate. A short distance to the Ngorongoro Crater, the farm overlooks the centuries-old Great Rift Valley and Ngorongoro Forest. The gentle and soothing ways of Gibb’s Farm offers a welcome retreat from the rigors of daily life or the adventures of safari to Tanzania.

There is a cadence to the rhythm of this working farm—never fast, always nurturing. Organic Arabica coffee is grown and roasted on the farm. A 10-acre organic fruit, vegetable and herb garden, on-site dairy and bakery provide the wonderful ingredients from the farm-to-table cuisine. Trips around the farm are much encouraged where you can actively take part in some of the daily farm life. Longer hikes into the surrounding forest and to the crater rim can be arranged.
