Africa/Indian Ocean > Tanzania > All Regions > Moshi

We welcome you to our farm house, in the middle of a coffee estate on the foothills of 5,896 meters high Mt. Kilimanjaro.
A stay on our farm is an adventure in itself. The landscape and scenery are as diverse as they are enchanting. Much of the farmland is devoted to conservation, bordered by two rivers, each filled with towering trees - a habitat we are committed to preserving. The birdlife is phenomenal, monkeys, small antelope and nocturnal game abound, and are frequently seen and heard. This is the perfect terrain for horse riding.
From here you can do daily rides or a short horseback safari with a mobile camp through Chagga-Land along Mt. Kilimanjaro and ride in the Kilimanjaro Forest Reserve.
For experienced riders we offer gameviewing on horseback: Between the highest point in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru we explore the West Kilimanjaro Wilderness and get in close contact to wild animals.
This is a safari as it meant to be!

The farm is near Kilimanjaro's Machame Gate with access to the spectacular rainforest on the mountain's lower slopes.
