About Gibb's Farm

Gibb’s Farm imparts a deeply-felt sense of well-being and tranquillity within a warm, rustic inn environment on the forested outer-slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater. The gentle rhythms 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.

Discover an oasis replete with natural beauty, nourishing food and sustainable living experienced through two 2-bedroom guest houses and seventeen 1-bedroom guest cottages.

Beyond our 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.

As a model for sustainable and environmentally respectful practices, we work to continue the legacy of our founders Margaret and James Gibb through projects including solar energy, community upliftment and organic farming. Each thing we do is a step towards creating a sanctuary for the senses, where our guests, our team and our animals feel nourished and content.

Generations of local families have helped to create a truly authentic, peaceful and memorable experience. We welcome our guests to truly immerse in the warmth, beauty, history and serenity of Gibb’s Farm.
