The first leg of this particular tour takes you straight to the Kilimanjaro Golf Course (an 18-hole course situated across 1,040 acres of prime African bushland).
While the course is not the easiest place to start your golfing safari (teeing on the course requires a good drive onto the undulating fairways), its location provides the most beautiful backdrop for an extraordinary round of golf. The estate is situated within a bush environment, so you will be able to spot some amazing creatures – including roaming zebra, wildebeest, dik-dik, and eland. The course weaves its way through the parkland, allowing you to take in the sights.
The sublime scenic beauty is something to marvel at – an astonishing welcome to the 8-day Tour with Massawe Adventures. Though challenging, the course is a great introduction to the diversity of Tanzanian golf courses, with each hole testing another piece of your golfing armoury!
