Overview

Situated between Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater, Gibb's farm is a secluded and tranquil retreat. Dotted around the lovely gardens are 18 individually decorated cottages. Each of the bright cottages has a lounge area and private balcony offering views of the pretty gardens or of the surrounding coffee plantations. The large bathrooms have a separate bath and shower and also an outdoor shower.

Over at the main farmhouse are the communal areas including a living room, dining rooms and outside verandahs, where you can sit back and enjoy the views.

We love Gibb's Farm because it serves as the perfect base to relax and have a break from the more rigid schedule of a safari. Its gorgeous location also helps to build a sense of rural Africa. If sitting back and taking it all in sounds too sedentary, mountain biking and walking are two of the activities on offer, as well as a broad assortment of farm-based activities including bread-making and coffee roasting. For those looking for a more cultural experience, there are community projects to visit.

Children of all ages are welcome. There is one family cottage comprising two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a common living area. Inter-connecting rooms are also available. Although there is no dedicated children's programme, the range of activities is fabulous. Children love exploring the extensive grounds and are often invited to milk the cows or feed the pigs! Staff members offer an informal babysitting service and cots and highchairs are available. Although parents can be reassured by the fence around the property, children must remain under attentive parental supervision at all times.

Gibb's Farm is an attractive and tranquil hideaway in a wonderful location, where guests can enjoy a change of pace in the comfort of peaceful surroundings.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
