With the vets from Kilimanjaro

Makoa Farm is located on the southern slope of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
the highest mountain in Africa at 5,896 metres.

Enjoy the ambience of an estate founded in 1901 with the original colonial-style farmhouse and the climate as well as the vegetation of the highlands – Makoa Farm is situated at 1,070 metres. Makoa Farm is not a lodge, but a former coffee farm and now a Noah’s Ark for domestic and smaller wild animals. The latter live freely in the protective bush on the farmland, bordered by the Makoa and Kikafu rivers.

The old colonial farmhouse of Makoa Farm

Our guests are accommodated in four luxurious cottages. This is a spacious and comfortable house/tent mix on platform with en suite bathrooms. Each cottage has its own private veranda from which you can often watch birds or monkeys playing in the trees or on the roof. In good weather there is a fantastic view of the summit of Kilimanjaro and the mountain rainforest on the lower slopes.

There is also a cosy guest cottage, the farm’s former papaya dryer. This has been lovingly renovated in maisonette style, with a large double bed downstairs and a smaller double and another single bed upstairs, an en-suite bathroom and a large veranda. Sleeps 5 in total and is ideal for families. The guest cottage is opposite the main house and next to the garden. There is plenty of lush greenery and also plenty of wildlife: From birds and monkeys playing in the trees and on the roof, to the odd pet, guests will always have visitors.
