Garden grown organic vegetables and locally raised meat, farm-fresh milk, cream and baked goods provide the healthy, nutritious ingredients for sumptuous breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. The farm’s organic vegetable and terraced flower gardens provide a wonderful sanctuary for afternoon tea or a quiet walk to impart a sense of contentment and well-being.
Day 1. Ngorongoro, Tanzania
Guests staying at Gibb's Farm in Tanzania's Ngorongoro Highlands area have a unique opportunity to give back. Work alongside the farms skilled carpenters to construct much needed school furniture. At area schools, three to four children typically share one desk, so new furniture is always appreciated. This is a very rewarding way to participate in village life and support children’s education.
