The Gibb’s Farm is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. It’s authentic, quiet and relaxing. The hotel is surrounded by its vegetable gardens and coffee plantation. The food is amazingly tasty, fresh and almost everything comes from the farm.
The chef manages to make the most out of the vegetables and other products of the farm to deliver delicious dishes.
I definitely advise you to do the garden and plantation walk with someone form the hotel who will explain everything about their products.
The hotel staff was very kind and always ready to help. There is wifi in the main building. The rooms were beautiful. The only negative thing I would say is that the beds weren’t the best…
In general I definitely advise you to stay at Gibbs farm during your Tanzanian trip!

Room tip: There are many activities to do at the hotel (walks, bike/ horse tours/ coffee production/ milking cows etc)

We spent our first couple of nights here in Tanzania and wished we had a few more. We enjoyed milking cows, hiking, toured the farm, saw and learned about all the animals, the coffee plantation, played with Jade a newborn Calf who ran to greet us, had massages and facials in the spa, played chess on their large outdoor boards, lounged around the pool, toured the elephant caves with a guide and even saw elephants climbing in the forest on the tour.And we didn't do everything we would of liked to do. The food and meals are amazing. My kids are a bit picky and our server picked up on it and brought a few items not on the menu that he knew they had enjoyed the previous day- an amazing tomato soup, zucchini soup and pancakes! There are many places to sit and enjoy the scenery outside, fireplaces or join others at the Tembo Fire for conversation. The farm is owned by Judi and Rick who also own Thomson Safaris. It is obvious they love Tanzania and the people. They recycle, try not to leave a footprint, employ the locals who love their job and it shows. You can request a fire in the fireplace at turndown and they transform your room into a sleeping paradise. We actually had heaters in our beds one evening when it go pretty cold! I hope to return for another tour and 3-4 days at Gibbs Farm at a minimum. As you drive down the dirt road.....you will be absolutely amazed at what lies at the end! Truly a magical spot!

An easy, scenic drive from Arusha on tarmac all the way except for the last 5 km on a good dirt road. Gibbs Farm has lost none of its charm over the years and how wonderful it was to be back there and find it better than ever before. Food, service and surroundings take a lot of beating if your heart's desire is a break in the coutryside with great hiking, birding and spectacular scenery, a pre or post safari stopover or even just lunch en route. There are plenty of activities included in the full board rate so there is never any need to bored or under exercised. Most of the food served is from farm to fork and the resident chef ensures that guests' every taste is accommodated. The staff are friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

This property is amazing. It's like the Garden of Eden.
Family of 5 (3 teenage boys). We had 2 rooms next door to each other. The rooms are luxurious with fireplaces and decks and spa-like bathrooms.
The service was impeccable and the staff so friendly.
The views and the flowers as you stroll around are breathtaking. Our family milked the cows and watched coffee roasting and used the bikes to ride around the small village next door.
Our family went to a local school and donated desks. Highly recommend this experience.
The best part is the food. Everything is fresh from the farm and you can tell. The food was fantastic. If you are a foodie, this is your place.
of note, the gift shop was lovely with some high quality items.
We also did the property hike to a waterfall (theres another longer hike off property that has a fee) and it was very nice and a good way to get some exercise, alhtough not strenuous.
The drive through Karatu to get to the place is very educational and culturally interesting...how the people really live.

We stayed in the Weavers cottage and it was simply wonderful. The decor was wonderful with a touch of a Cape Cod feel. We had our own little private pond off the front porch complete with fountain. The fireplace, which was lit for us at night while we had dinner, was visible in the living area and the bathroom making a bath at night even better. Dafar, our waiter, was wonderful, even setting us up with an outdoor dinner two nights of our stay. We felt so very special. This was my dream trip, to Tanzania on Safari and the staff at Gibbs farm did not disappoint. I suggest getting a massage from Juliette or Christine, take a hike around the grounds with Pascal and try your hand at roasting some coffee. The views all around the grounds are amazing as well as the beautiful flowers and plants.Don't forget to plan a day in the Ngorongoro crater!
