Gibb’s Farm, Ngorongoro Region


Considered one of the oldest guesthouses in northern Tanzania, this beautiful farm of more than 75 acres was established in the late 1920's.

It played a vital role in the surrounding agricultural community for decades. Now, it is the perfect stopover before heading to Ngorongoro and beyond. A couple of nights at Gibb’s Farm will open your heart to the simple joys of farm life on the edge of the great Ngorongoro Crater.

Gibb’s Farm was bought in 1948 by James Gibb after it had been neglected for years during the Second World War. In 1959, he married Margaret and, together, they worked to revive the coffee plantation that had once produced aromatic arabica coffee. They laboured tirelessly to renovate the beautiful farmhouse, preserving the original exposed wooden beams, ironwork and stone fireplaces.

The original farmhouse still stands, consisting of a charming living room, two dining areas, a veranda decorated with creepers and potted plants, a gazebo and a gift shop. Around it, 17 cottages offer a tranquil base for guests. Margaret’s herb, fruit and vegetable garden is still well tended, offering a farm-to-plate menu.
