The exclusive Kilimanjaro Golf & Wildlife Estate, referred to simply as Kili Golf by its members, is the first 18-hole championship golf course in Tanzania. Designed by former European Tour legend David Jones, Kili Golf is situated on 1,040 acres of prime African bush land. One of the golf courses standout features is its location; Nestled between Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro, the entire Estate offers inspiring views as well as encounters with the resident African wildlife. To the south stretches the Maasai Steppe and the great ridges of the ancient Eastern Arc chain: The Pare, Usambara and Blue Mountains, all of which are visible from the Estate.
The protective environment provided by the Kilimanjaro Estate creates a favorable climate for its resident wildlife. The result of a close collaboration project with the Wildlife Division of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, the animals that are brought here require relocation because they have been orphaned, threatened or have lost much of their habitat. Many species of small game such as dik dik, duiker, bush pig, jackal, African serval, aardvark, civet and genet cats live in the bush surrounding the golf course. The natural water features provide a haven for bird life, while larger species of game such as eland, kudu, Grant's gazelle, Thompson’s gazelle, gerenuk, wildebeest and zebra can also be found on the Estate.
