Gibb's Farm offers different opportunities to get involved.

Guided by a Gibb's Farm naturalist & rangers from Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the Farm to Ngorongoro Crater Rim Walking Safari is an amazing way to reach the Crater or hike to the magnificent waterfall and incredible ''elephant caves''. If you're not feeling up to walking, we also offer driving day safari's to Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Eyasi.

Gibb’s Farm’s deep and long-standing connection to the community continues to inspire excellence and the farm’s sustainable, renewable practices serve as a model for living in harmony with nature.

Property Facilities:
The bright, airy dining rooms are a delightful way to begin and end each day. The rustic style of the farmhouse has been replicated throughout the dining rooms, which feature exposed trusses, adzed beams, wooden ceilings, iron work and old stone fireplaces.

The Chef and culinary team are renowned for creating rich, earth-friendly menus, utilising fresh, local and seasonal foods whenever possible. Our organic farm-to-table cuisine stimulates the senses and provides sustenance to restore, replenish and energise. Garden grown organic vegetables and locally raised meats, farm-fresh milk, cream and baked goods provide the healthy, nutritious ingredients for our sumptuous breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.
