You will drive about 45 minutes from Moshi to this tinny oasis. It’s located along one of the small rivers in the Kilimanjaro.
You can leave Moshi between 7am and 8am and head to the Gavrilo’s Monkey Paradise where you will experience monkeys in their free space with a lot of quiet and tranquility.
There is no much human activity here and therefore you will get close to these primates and they have been habituated and interact freely with humans.
The area is surrounded by a lot of fruit trees which are very important as they are a source of food for the primates here. When you follow all the rules and not interrupt the monkeys, you will observe them in their families and see them play on the canopies of the trees.
With such tranquility, there are a lot of other wildlife species that will be attracted here like birds. For bird lovers, expect a lot of birds here. There are a few mongoose that you will see on your lucky day.
You will have a chance to explore the nearby village and enjoy local meals prepared by the locals.
Best Time to Visit Kilimanjaro area
If you are thinking about trekking the highest mountain ranges in Africa or have you have already booked your Tanzania safari to Kilimanjaro? The most common thing will be what’s the best time to visit and the other terms and conditions for the hike.
It’s possible that you can trek the Kilimanjaro any time throughout the year but some months are covered in cold weather and rains and snow especially the top and yet some are dry and a lot more favorable.
Its best advised to hike the Kilimanjaro is between the months of December to February and Mid June to September. Ideally these are the dry months but even then, sometimes it can and gets a bit messy.
It is however believed that a day of rain may not be as bad as rain that comes in a season and rains on a daily. But even the months that are considered to be cold or wet may not necessarily be so ad they can even go weeks without any rain.
The dry months are also the most crowded; the mountain can be filed with tourist and for people that have intent to explore extensively, you may need to reconsider.
