Gibb`s Farm hugs nearly a mile of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, part of a 3,200 square milereserve. Ideally located, the Farm lays half way between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater, near the village of Karatu.Set among formal English gardens, the Farmhouse and 20 ensuite cottages are the heart of a working farm. Built in 1929, the Farmhouse has hardly changed, retaining the charm of a well looked-after private house. Cozy living rooms and reading corners are just steps away from the dining room, bar and gift shop.
Fireplaces fill the Farmhouse with warmth and historical charm. Just outside, a sprawling verandah and floral garden invite sweeping views of the valley below the Farm. Organic Coffee is grown, processed and roasted on the Farm, and a vast 10-acre organic fruit and vegetable garden provides 90% of the ingredients needed for fresh, home-cooked meals.
NUMBER OF ROOMS & DESCRIPTION:
