Gibb's Farm: Located on the forested slopes of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Gibb’s Farm comprises a warm and friendly community where the rhythm of Farm Life has calmed and restored the weary safari journeyer for over 40 years.

The Farm hugs nearly a mile of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, part of a 3,200 square mile reserve. Ideally located, it lies half way between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater, near the village of Karatu.

Set among formal English gardens, the Farmhouse and 20 ensuite cottages are the heart of a working farm. Built in 1929, the Farmhouse has hardly changed, retaining the charm of a well looked-after private house. Cozy living rooms and reading corners are just steps away from the dining room, bar and gift shop.

The Farm
Gibb’s Farm today consists of 30 Acres of quality organic coffee, 10 acres of organic vegetables and fruit, 5 acres of flowers and herbs and a working dairy and pig farm. There is also a tree nursery on the Farm where hundreds of young saplings are grown to encourage the growth of native tree species in the area.

The entire operation is a model of ecologically sustainable agriculture. Everything is grown organically using only natural fertilizer from the farm. Farm Manager Petro uses plants with insect repellent properties instead of pesticides to ensure that no chemicals are added to the vegetables. Reclaimed water is used whenever possible. All buildings and furniture are built using local materials and local labor, at our on-site workshop. All bottles are broken down and recycled, or used in building foundations. 90% of our hot water is heated using solar power. In short, every possible element of Gibb’s Farm is ecologically friendly and sustainable.

Gibb's Farm

 

The Farmhouse
The main facilities, consisting of a living room, reading room, dining room, bar and gift shop, are situated in the old Farmhouse. Originally built in 1929, the Farmhouse retains her character of a well-looked-after private house with roaring fires and friendly hospitality. The Farmhouse patio sprawls into lush, vivid, gardens with sweeping views of the valley and beyond.

The Living Rooms
The Farm’s original chill room (from the cool waters of the Ngorongoro forest) was long ago transformed into a cozy living room. The front living room has hardly changed in 80 years.

The Reading Room
The Farm’s old knitting room was recently transformed into a library and reading room. Outside the library, a charming patio sprawls into the lush floral garden, providing sweeping views of the coffee farm and valley beyond.
