Anyone familiar with Makoa Farm or Ndarakwai Ranch in northern Tanzania?

Jump to last reply

We're considering a short horseback safari/farm stay through Makoa Farm. The horseback safari portion would take place on nearby Ndarakwai Ranch with overnight fly camping. We'd then stay a couple of extra nights at the farm. The owner of the farm, Elisabeth, has been very responsive and helpful and is willing to do a private trip just for the 2 of us. The cost is very reasonable. She's also provided me with email contacts for references and so far, the two that I've heard back from have been very positive. The pictures she sent of the farm cottages look nice too.

Just wondering if anyone here has any input about the farm or ranch. Or any general comments (weather, scenery, etc.) about the area we'll be riding in. From what I could gather, the farm is located on the southern slope of Kilimanjaro about 40 minutes from JRO airport and near Machame(?) and the ranch is another 90 minutes from the farm on the western slope. This would be for sometime in November.

Has anyone gone on a horseback safari in Tanzania? Anything we should be particularly aware of other than making sure we don't piss off any elephants? ;) Thanks!
