Gibb's Farm is a little ways from most attractions (in relative terms - it's not all that far, really) but totally worth the investments of time and money. The cottages we stayed in were beautifully decorated and luxurious. The grounds are lush and gorgeous. There are so many activities to do on the farm - which we didn't get to...

I was lucky enough to spend two nights at Gibbs Farm in January and it was far better than I could have imagined. Living in Karatu, I occasionally stop by for a sundowner or the amazing Sunday brunch, but this was the first time I was able to spend a few nights. The rooms are beautiful, service incredibly friendly and...

An absolutely beautiful place in the middle of Tanzania. We were here for two nights over the 2016-17 New Year. A working coffee plantation with a 10 acre organic vegetable and animal farm. Beautiful accommodations along with some of the pretties gardens to be seen on our 16 day trip to Tanzania. I highly recommend 3-4 nights. 2 are just...

We opted to stay at Gibb's Farm on our visit to Ngorongoro Carter and we were so glad. This is an unbelievable farm set in the highlands. The food selections were over the top. To watch them pick the food you would eat later that day - nothing fresher than that! The room was so comfortable and spacious with a...

We stayed at Gibbs Farm as a stopover between 2 safaris. Our bungalow was spacious and comfortable. Particularly enjoyed the walled outdoor garden shower and spa massage. Excellent dining room menu. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gibbs Farm and would recommend it unconditionally

A lovely 4 star retreat not far from Ngorongoro Crater. Beautiful rooms, lovely dining, all organic veggies and meats. Views from main house are spectacular. If the WiFi was stronger I'd give it 5 stars.

We have been to Tanzania several times. We like to see and experience different things each time we go. However, Gibbs farm is the exception where we just had to go back and stay. Each time we wish we would have spent more time there. The service is very attentive, the cottages wonderfully decorated and food superb. (Peter is exceptional!)
