History of Shamba Yetu

Shamba Yetu started its life by Costa (known as Marc), Ann and Fiona Marcandonatos in 1997, consisting of 220 hectares of bare bush. Marc was born on the foothills of Kilimanjaro, formerly known as Tanganyika and he loved Africa.

Marc left Tanganyika in 1960 and met Ann in South Africa where he settled. His love for Africa was contiguous to the point that his wife, Ann, and his daughter, Fiona, acquired Shamba Yetu and over the years developed it into what it is today.
Marc was fluent in Swahili and was a proud African. Shamba Yetu, directly translated, means “Our Place”.

Shamba Yetu became a labour of love for Marc, Ann and Fiona being a weekend getaway. Marc and Ann had their business in Johannesburg, whilst their daughter, Fiona, practiced law. The original roads on Shamba Yetu were hand hewn by Marc and Fiona, with Ann providing beverages and sandwiches.

Over the years Shamba Yetu developed to that which exists today, with a lot of passion and love put into it by Marc, Ann and Fiona. It became a place of escape for them and now an escape for other people.

Regrettably, Marc and Ann are no longer with us, but Fiona continues their legacy.
