An idyllic retreat while exploring the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Park, as well as Lake Eyasi, on safari in Northern Tanzania. Located on the outer slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater lies Gibbs Farm. Founded in the 1920s as a coffee plantation, Gibbs embraces traditional East African hospitality with the roots extending deep into the land and the heritage here. Recline with a cup of freshly roasted coffee overlooking the Great Rift Valley in lush surroundings.

Gibbs Farm imparts a sense of well-being and tranquillity within a war, rustic inn environment. Each seventeen 1-bedroom farm cottage holds its own story connected to Tanzanian culture and history told through unique furnishings and art collections. Famed for outdoor showers, you have a choice of twin queen or king-sized bedrooms swathed in a soft mosquito net. The cottages have recently been refurbished with modern touches to accentuate their classic charm and comfortably accommodate solo travelers, couples, and families.

Two farmhouses, Bustani and Deutsches, offer the perfect retreat for bigger families and those traveling together. Each spacious house features two en-suite bedrooms (complete with outdoor showers) and a private living area designed to juxtapose antiques with contemporary Tanzanian art. The gardens and private spaces of both farmhouses afford guests the opportunity to enjoy the tranquil beauty of nature against a backdrop of singing birds.
