History - the making of
During the holiday season of 2009 the second mainstay of the Gabriel’s was established at the foot of the Kilimanjaro:
The Shu’mata-Camp! The name means “heaven” in the language of the Maasai whose brilliantly red cloths stand out in the dusty pastel-colored environment.
The camp is heavenly indeed when you rest in one of the luxurious, spacious tents on the top of the hill. They are all furnished in a unique combination of Maasai, Hemingway and Arabic styles. Decorations and textures in natural materials and radiant Maasai colors were designed by Marlies Gabriel and crafted in Arusha by the women of the MamaMomella project. During the night the locusts clitter, zebras bay and hyenas can be heard from afar enjoying a Hemingway whiskey near the open fire will trigger feelings of adventure and romantic safaris. Especially under a full moon, when you look up the slope of the majestic Kilimanjaro that seems incredibly close and you perceive the glistening glaciers near the top.
