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.

Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol

It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
Kind regards, John

Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
