|Gibb's Farm is an oasis of green, calm and beauty, in a landscape that can often be parched, dry and dusty. It is a perfect respite from the rigours of safari.|
At the entrance to the Highlands, midway between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater, five kilometres from the village of Karatu, is Gibb's Farm.
In this exotic location on the outer slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater, Gibbs Farm commands vast views of the surrounding farmlands. Whilst at the back the forested slopes of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area are home to an abundance of wildlife, including elephant and leopard.

The old-colonial farmhouse, built by German settlers in the early 20th century, still has the character of a well-looked-after-private house with roaring fires and friendly service. The aspect of Gibbs Farm that brings people back again and again is the fantastic home cooked food that is served in the dining room, and grown on the farm.
Twenty cottages with garden patios and fireplaces. Library, wraparound farmhouse patio with panoramic valley views. Gibbs Café Lounge. East African Gift Shop.
