Gibbs Farm is situated on a picturesque coffee estate just outside the town of Karatu and midway between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater. The gracious and sprawling colonial homestead that is set amongst formal English-style gardens. While coffee is still grown, processed and roasted on the farm, a vast fruit and vegetable garden provides almost all of the fresh produce used in the wholesome, delicious meals enjoyed by guests.
Cosy and inviting cottages with private verandas and stone fireplaces scattered in the spacious grounds, while the guest areas, which include a charming living room, two dining rooms and a gift boutique, are situated in the lovingly refurbished old farmhouse. Cosy nooks and crannies invite guests to linger, while the spacious patio boasts sweeping views of the tranquil gardens.
Luxury in the Heart of Nature

How about the rooms?Looking out over a coffee plantation and into the Great Rift Valley, the farm’s 21 cottages have wooden floors, wraparound windows, fireplaces, and bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers. The interiors are more cottage chic than luxe—simple and rustic, with stone walls, wooden floors, and a fireplace—but they’re all very sweet and typically set with a vase of freshly picked flowers.
How about the food?
Think classic English fare, prepared with organic vegetables, fruits, and meat from the farm.
