A fantastic property-the food was out of this world and the grounds were stunning. Take the farm tour to see how much effort is put in back of house and to see just how fresh the ingredients are! The rooms were beautiful and cosy.

After summiting Mount Kilimanjaro, we spent a couple nights at Gibb's Farm. This place is fabulous! I want to go back! Everything was great - food, rooms, massage, grounds, views and the hospitality! Best massage I ever had!

This is a hotel, restaurant and attraction all in one. Our stop for lunch included a short hike through the rift valley as an option. Just relaxing in the garden or taking a garden tour was also available. The restaurant offered a buffet. Choices for every palate including several sweet options for those who sat with dessert first.

From the moment you are greeted at the door to the last farewell, the hospitality at Gibb's Farm is second to none.

Stunning grounds, lovely spacious lodges, fabulous food; friendly helpful staff and a range of activities.....what more could you ask for. I just wish we could have stayed longer. Next time I am in Tanzania Gibb's Farm will be top of my list - probably after Serengeti as a great place to unwind after the rigours of safari.

We spent two nights here in the middle of our safari. The location near the lush area of the Ngorongoro Crater was ideal. The cottages are wonderful and very colonial in style and the gardens lovely. The food was all farm to table and so fresh and organic. This is a working organic farm and coffee plantation and would love...
