Located 56 km, or a two-hour drive, from our front gate, explore this bucket-list safari destination on a full-day excursion. There is an abundance of plant, bird and wildlife for the opportunity to experience this natural marvel first-hand. Uncover just why the Ngorongoro Crater is considered to be among the world’s great wonders.
The Crater boasts approximately 25 000 large animals and has one of the densest populations of lions anywhere in Tanzania. You will be collected from the farm early in the morning in closed safari vehicle with a pop-up roof for 360° views.
For the truly adventurous, head to the Crater on foot with our Farm to Ngorongoro Crater Rim Walking Safari (a 5-7 hour hike) or explore the Conservation Area with a two-hour hike to the Elephant Caves.
Explore not one, but two beautiful lakes and their wildlife-rich national parks close to Gibb’s Farm.
Well known for flocks of thousands of flamingos that feed along the edge of the lake in the wet season, Lake Manyara is located just a short 45 min drive from our farm. The close proximity of this renowned wildlife region means you can enjoy a full-day or half-day safari to this bird haven. Did we mention that there are more than 350 bird species have been observed on the lake?
Slightly further afield, and absolutely worth the drive, Lake Eyasi is 1.5 hours away from our gates. A culture-rich experience, spend time with the Hadzabe tribe learning about their history and traditional ways of living. Spend the day exploring the Tanzanian wilderness in search of elephants. Be on the lookout for African spoonbill, flamingoes, great white pelicans and more.
