helping animals in Tanzania for more than 25 years

Welcome to the KILI CREW

Welcome at Makoa-Farm and the Kilimanjaro Animal Center for Rescue, Education, and Wildlife! Join our effort to promote a greater understanding of wildlife by creating a generation of informed and compassionate youth who will lead Tanzania to a more sustainable future for wildlife, the environment and the community.

We invite Tanzania’s next generation to learn about the importance of conservation whilst treating wild animals that are injured or otherwise afflicted by humans and preparing them for later release back into the wild.
Kilimanjaro Animal C.R.E.W. is a Non Governmental Organization and non-profit making (established under Section 12 (2) of Act No. 24 of 2002, of the Laws of The United Republic of Tanzania, bearing a certificate of compliance No.NGO/00007782 and with physical address at Makoa Farm).
The NGO runs entirely on donations and depends on likeminded people who wish to support our efforts for animals and people on site.
