About Us

WHO WE ARE

Makokero hills is a functions venue, a family owned business founded in year 2013.
It is located in Christon Bank, Mazowe 26kms from Harare CBD. It is where in 2012 a piece of dry, rocky, hill was purchased from a previous owner who had relocated to Australia. At a first glance the terrain and condition of land was a disappointment because the search for land was for agriculture purposes, but the 3rd eye was attracted to it anyway.

 

After few visits imagining what the ‘unusable’ land would become, a vision of a functions venue was born. From this day it was going to be blood, sweat and tears to realise the vision but nothing would stop the power of this vision. No stone would be left unturned, literally. It was long hours sometimes night shifts of hard work and the passion for excellence was greatly rewarded. The place never ceases to amaze its visitors, and the owners as well.

How the name came about.

One could night the family gathered by the fireplace and as the norm before evening family prayer time, discussion about the vision started – what was going to be the appropriate name of this place. Each member came up with suggestions, ‘cast forth their lots’ and the lot fell on Makokero Hills – a name suggested by one of the daughters. The name was adopted. She went on to explain that Makokero is from a shona name kukokera which can be translated bringing people together.

1st function held at Makokero hills was a church youth day out held on the 01st of May 2013, followed by a wedding a week later on 08th of May 2013 and still counting.
