Arusha National Park Wilderness Ride
Tanzania Tanzania

“Momella – a farm in Africa“. This German film documents the life of Margarete Trappe, a famous German “White Huntress”, also known as “Mother of the Masai”.

She arrived in Tanzania at the beginning of the 20th century and founded the farm called “Momella”, located in what is now Arusha National Park. As a result of her extraordinary life as a pioneering white woman in Africa and her cat-and-mouse games as a scout for Von Lettow Vorbeck in the First World War she became famous and later instigated conservation in this area.

The Arusha National Park has a dense vegetation and hosts great numbers of buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wart hog, different types of antelope, hippo, several primate species including the black & white colobus monkey, flamingo and numerous birds. Elephant are also found here and we will use their paths during our riding safari.

Arusha National Park encompasses Mt. Meru which is the 2nd highest mountain in Tanzania and the 3rd highest free-standing mountain in Africa. There are dramatic variations in scenery: open savannah, dense forest and thick bush, impressive craters and many lakes. Furthermore there are 5 distinct vegetation zones which host a wealth of flora and fauna.

For the first time in the history of Tanzania´s National Parks TANAPA has given Makoa-Farm exclusive access to take riding safaris within the park boundaries. Dive into the world of Margarete Trappe and follow her footsteps tracking game!
