Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania
This is quite a special place adjacent to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The main facilities are situated in the old colonial farmhouse built by German settlers in the early 20th century, and it’s still a well-looked-after-private house with roaring fires and friendly service. The individual guest cottages, each with a working log fireplace, are beautifully appointed and have private terraces. Coffee is grown, processed, and roasted on the farm, and a ten-acre fruit and organic vegetable garden provides nearly all the fruit and vegetables served in the dining room. Gibbs Farm was recently recognized by Conde Nast Traveler magazine in the World Saver Awards for its wildlife conservation and cultural and environmental preservation achievements.
