Gibb's Farm was a perfect location for the last four nights of our honeymoon in Tanzania. It offered such a relaxing experience, and we were amazed by the property. When my husband and I walked into our cottage at Gibb's Farm, we both said that it was the most beautiful hotel room we have ever stayed in. The decor, outdoor shower, and porch - every feature added to the overall character of the place. The grounds were beautiful, and we loved touring the gardens and admiring all of the plants and flowers. The food is literally farm to table and was prepared and served with so much care. We loved every meal and especially enjoyed the coffee that they roast on site every day. The managers, Nick and Sally, were so welcoming and we had a great time with them. They did a fantastic job making sure our honeymoon was incredibly special. We enjoyed having Albert as our driver. He was so fun to work with and very personable. We had a great time with him searching for rhinos in the Ngorogoro Crater and were super grateful for his expertise when he spotted one in the distance. Our flight from Manyara to Dar Es Salaam at the end of the trip was modified by the airline company, and my husband and I are so grateful that Albert was able to drive us to a different airstrip and grateful that Nimrod and the staff at Gibb's were so helpful while we navigated the changes to our plans. We highly recommend Gibb's Farm!
There are not enough words to explain how wonderful this place is. We were fortunate to stay a week here. The staff is amazing. The rooms are incredible. The food is wonderful. Peter took such wonderful care of us at meal time. What a wonderful asset to the team there. We encountered so many wonderful people while staying there. I had one of the best massages there. We spent many mornings just wandering around the farm enjoying all the colors and smells. Just an absolutely incredible experience.
Beautiful break with family at Gibbs Farm! Highly recommended.
Dear Peter and Nick A huge thank you for the amazing hospitality we experienced at our recent stay at Gibsb Farm. Gibbs Farm is a gem of a place set amongst the beautiful backdrop on the outskirts of the Ngorongora Crater. The views alone could easily be used for the set for a movie. The mature gardens and the farm are immaculately well maintained with painstaking details. The standard of cleanliness, customer service and attention to detail is exceptional. Thank you for making our 3 day trip packed full of happy memories that we will cherish. The highlight for me include the outstanding food we were served from breakfast, lunch through to dinner. So much care and consideration had been made to accommodate the dietary requirements for our party which included Gluten free and Vegan (not including 2 kids who are fussy eaters). Nothing was too much trouble for Peter and Chef Reese who also provided us with a huge packed lunches on 2 separate occasions for my family when we were away from the farm on excursions. Thank you. We also have to say a special thank you to Ester at Front of House, who looked after each and every aspect of our stay. She even kindly organised a day Safari to Ngorongora Crater through their local guide Maliki at Shimesa Travels. He was by far the most experienced and knowledgeable guide we have ever met on Safari (he is an ex Ranger so we felt in good hands) who was so happy to share his years of experience working with nature. He is also very patient with the kids . With Maliki's help we were able to spot all 'The Big 5' animals in the Crater and we were also able to spot a big rhino up close thanks to Maliki's detective skills I'm tracking down this rare creature. The walking trip to the Elephant Cave and waterfall were another highlight that should not be missed by anyone staying the property. The local guide from Gibbs was so knowledgeable and accommodating to the needs of our group especially my kids who also loved the waterfall and had lots of questions along the way. Thank you again!
I was lucky enough to spend a week there along with my daughter and granddaughter 3 years ago. We loved it ! The food, coffee, staff and rooms were wonderful. Since it was our first trip it was during the rainy season that would be my only complaint. Hope to go back one day.
A delightful and relaxing place. Wonderful food and very helpful people. I could have spent a month here. The SPA treatment I received was outstanding. The staff went above and beyond to please. This place is a corner of paradise with their outstanding gardens.
