Atop a hill in the heart of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, with lush coffee plantations stretching as far as the eye can see, is Gibb’s Farm. This magnificently renovated 1920’s homestead steeped in history is the perfect home away from home in which to unwind whether en route to a safari or homeward bound.
If you are simply too energetic to enjoy a book whilst taking in the incredible natural beauty of the area, several delightful activities are available. Get involved in the farm’s daily grind of bread baking, coffee roasting or vegetable harvesting. Connect with the local community on school visits and village tours offered by Gibb’s community program. For a touch of the wild, hop on a tour to Lake Manyara or the Ngorongoro Crater.
Accommodation comprises 17 farm cottages styled to draw on the farmstead roots of the guesthouse. Each individually themed cottage oozes comfort and style with beautiful handcrafted furniture, twin queen or king-size beds, en-suites, outdoor showers, and a patio overlooking manicured gardens. For families and friends travelling together, a two-bedroom farm house with en-suite bathrooms and a common living area is available.
