Weddings & Honeymoons

Celebrate your love in legendary style

The traditions, history and romance of Gibb’s Farm make it ideal for a destination wedding or adventure honeymoon. The farm’s namesake, James Gibb, married his wife Margaret here. To commemorate the occasion, they planted the lovely flowering Erythrina Abysinnica tree outside the Wedding House cottage. The Wedding Cottage celebrates their marriage and the legacy of their partnership in creating a special place for couples to begin and celebrate their lives together.

Our warm and attentive team will help you plan the perfect wedding, set among the intense beauty of dozens of flowering plants or on the lush, rolling lawn overlooking the coffee fields with breathtaking views of the Ngorongoro Forest. We offer traditional and local wedding ceremonies and commitment ceremonies (renewal of vows), with East African touches.

We cater to your every need, working with you to plan the perfect event for you and your guests in one of the world’s most magnificent settings. Whether you desire an intimate gathering or a grand ceremony and reception, your wedding will be an unforgettable celebration.

Honeymoons

If you are planning an Africa safari honeymoon, Gibb’s Farm is a wonderful, romantic destination. One of the first guest houses in Northern Tanzania, Gibb’s Farm is a serene, peaceful retreat with cozy, luxuriously-appointed cottages, each featuring wrap-around windows, a private verandah, fireplace and indoor/outdoor showers.

Overlooking the centuries-old Great Rift Valley and Ngorongoro Forest, the natural beauty of Gibb’s Farm offers a retreat from the rigors of safari in Tanzania. Surrounded by lush, fragrant plants, more than 200 species of birds, exotic wildlife and rolling coffee fields, the rhythms of the farm and beyond transport you and your loved one to another time and place.

Enjoy peaceful walks together in the nearby forest, afternoon high tea, bike the back roads of Karatu or simple relaxation with a personalized spa treatment in the privacy of your cottage. For a complete adventure, take an afternoon or day to explore Lake Manyra National Park or Ngorongoro Crater on one of our safari adventures. To energize and replenish you, plentiful fresh, farm-to-table cuisine is served for breakfast, lunch and dinner featuring the farm’s organic produce and meat, milk and cream from the dairy and fresh-baked breads and desserts.
