Gibbs Farm, Tanzania
Gibbs Farm is a hotel that offers peace, tranquillity and a return to a different way of life! The guests are actively encouraged to become at one with their surroundings and emerge themselves into the ‘rhythm of the farm’. It’s something that’s taken quite seriously at Gibbs. You can wake up early to go and milk the cattle, then make your way to the kitchen to make bread with the local chefs. It’s an altogether rewarding experience.
It’s located in the Karatu area of northern Tanzania, up in the Ngorongoro highlands with easy access to safari and the conservation area. As well as being about an hours drive to Lake Manyara’s airstrip. The farm was built as a coffee plantation by German settlers before it passed into British hands after the war, and it has been welcoming guests ever since.
The farmhouse holds 20 luxurious en-suite cottages nestled amongst the tropical gardens for which it’s famous. The cottages are very homely places with private gardens and verandas from which you can enjoy the view in your own space and tranquillity.
As you can imagine from this organic repertoire, the food is amazing. There is a 30 acre coffee plantation to explore on foot or bike. Gibbs also boasts a 10 acre vegetable garden, a dairy and a pig farm.
Gibbs Farm offers a fantastic break from safari, and a great chance to see a completely different and very rural African way of life.
