I loved the gallery and being able to watch the artists do their thing. I also enjoyed the morning coffee roasting sessions; very innovative and engaging. -Lovely cottages (I loved the outdoor shower area). -Amazing...

WE visited here as a stop on the way to Ngorongoro crater with our Safari company. The rooms were amazing and grounds were absolutely beautiful. Our family split up and part went off the village tour while the rest went on the farm tour. Both were great experiences.

The last night of our safari holiday in Tanzania was spent at Gibb's Farm and what an experience it was. The colonial-style room - an enormous suite with inside and outside showers, stone bath, two kingsize beds, balcony etc etc - was just amazing - quite a culture shock after days on the dusty roads and spending nights in tents...

Our trip to Gibb's Farm had been long anticipated and it definitely did not disappoint. Everything was beautiful - the rooms, the dining area, the grounds, the views for sundowners, etc. The staff were kind and attentive - all of whom had worked there for many years. 90% of the food you eat is grown on site and hence it's...

My husband and I heard numerous people praise Gibbs Farm for its beauty, fun-filled activities during the day and especially amazing food, so we finally made a point to check it out and spend a night at the property on the way to Serengeti with our 3 year old daughter. And honestly – this place exceeded any expectations. It all...

We spent two nights at Gibb's farm. The rooms are beautiful and it is in a very lush setting. There were two main problems with this property. First is that they charge you for most activities whether it is riding a bike or going on a nature walk. When you spend this much money you expect most things to be...

The service we experienced at Gibbs Farm was top notch. We were greeted as we arrived and felt at home immediately. Our room was spectacular. The view from the porch of the farm was amazing. Sipping coffee grown and roasted on premise while watching the farm wake up was amazing. The food we had at Gibbs Farm was by far...

“The rooms are equipped with U.S. compatible plugs. There is wifi, beautiful surroundings. Ask for a fire in your room at least ONE night. It is romantic, and does not warm up the room too much! Be sure to use the outside shower as well. We used the laundry service, and they followed every instruction, and our clothes were ready the next morning.”

“All rooms are beautiful, but if you are traveling as a big family - old farm-owner cottages would be the best fit.”
