Love this property, only got to stay here for one night and was the perfect start to our Tanzania experience.
Situated in the town of Karatu which is about 20min from the Ngorongoro crater entrance. A great option if you prefer not to stay at...More
This is such a great product and is so deserving of the Travel & leisure accolades. The farm itself is so well appointed and is a great option as a first stop in Tanzania before entering the crater. Gerd is a gracious host and the...More
We stayed one night at Gibbs Farm. It's a fantastic place, in a different league, and we thoroughly recommend it, provided you can afford it. One night was not enough to get the full benefit because there are activities arranged throughout the day, from bread...More

Good morning. Filtered water is always free and in unlimited supply as is tea and coffee. There is bottled water supplied in the cottages which gets refreshed by housekeeping daily as we do not recommend to drink the tap water.
There is a charge for bottled water in the restaurant.
There is also an option to pay a $40 supplement per person per day - this includes your choice of all standard local bottled water, all housewines ( 8 choices), choice of local beer, standard spirits and soft drinks.
It does not include premium imported water such as Pellegrino, premium spirits, cocktails and wines other than house wine.
I hope this assists. Please let me know if I can assist with anything else at all or if you have any questions.

We did a self drive, we hired a 4x4 in Arusha from Safari Drive. The roads were variable, tarmac, hard dirt and loose gravel. Lots of corrugations on the roads in the Serengeti but elsewhere not too bad. Easy to find your way around and gear safe in the vehicle in most places we felt. The road in to Gibbs Farm was a great drive through various little villages and small allotments, took a while on a dirt road but PolePole gets you there.
