In the morning, you will go to the rehabilitation center Makoa Farm, located at the foot of majestic Mount Kilimanjaro. Observation of monkeys in their natural habitat makes a truly unforgettable impression. These monkeys are absolutely tame, so you can freely touch and play with them, since they are used to care of the workers of the farm.
Your guide will tell you the history of Makoa Farm and answer your questions. After returning to the main building and having a delicious hot lunch, you will meet other residents of Makoa Farm: serval, mongoose, secretary bird, baboon, velvet and blue monkeys, marabou and others.
Unfortunately, having been injured by poachers or kept as pets and later confiscated, most of these animals cannot survive in the wild. That’s why they are kept in the rehabilitation center. In addition to the employees responsible for feeding, there is also a team of veterinarians helping to monitor the animals’ health. Makoa Farm is not sponsored by the government and functions solely at the expense of investments made by its owner and visitors. If you want to help preserve the heritage of the animal world of Tanzania, you are welcome to make a donation.
Excursion in Tanzania 5-6 hours
I’ve never been to a place like that. The atmosphere is so peaceful and quiet, that you can actually see yourself united with the wildlife. We have seen a troop of monkeys, coming very close to us in the morning and a few bushbabies later at night. We also enjoyed the food and the service — staff was very friendly and nice.
The staff are superb. Brenda the waiter seems to work all day and is always very attentive and friendly. The reception staff were very helpful and accommodating when we arrived a day early for our stay. Breakfast was very nice. The chef was very flexible and food was lovely. Our room was spotless and extra towels provided for use at the pool. A superb place to stay when trying to relax and escape after camping for the previous 3 nights during our safari.
I loved the outside areas — garden, seating near the pool, feeling of retreat. I also really liked the staff. They seemed to enjoy working together and were always ready to help me with anything (calling a taxi, getting airtime, preparing meals when it was most convenient for me, etc.). Having hot water for the shower was awesome!
