Village walk and Waterfalls: We will pick you up in the morning from your hotel in Moshi, Arusha or upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro/Arusha airports in a clean airconditioned vehicle and drive short distance to Materuni village. Materuni village is still an authentic tribal village home to the Chagga tribe and the last village before the Kilimanjaro National Park. First we start by a village walk to visit Materuni waterfalls, which are around a 45-minute walk away. On the way, learn about the culture of the Chagga tribe, village life, and the surrounding flora and fauna with your guide. Admire the breathtaking views and with luck, catch sight of the summit of Kilimanjaro, On the way trail can be slippery & muddy, best to have good hiking shoes with grip and a rain coat. When you reach the waterfalls, marvel at cascades that are more than 80-meters (262-feet) high. After enjoying the scenery you slowly return with your guide to Materuni village to experience a traditional Chagga lunch and opt to taste our local banana beer.! Coffee ceremony: You will be invited to help with the grinding of the coffee, which is traditionally accompanied by Chagga songs and dances - a fun way to immerse yourself in the local culture, You will make your own cup of coffee using traditional ways, taste local coffee and gain knowledge about Tanzania coffee Industry. Before you say goodbye, you can savor the coffee you made and appreciate the views of the surrounding rainforest before returning to your hotel in Arusha or Moshi. We will spend most of the time around mount Kilimanjaro and that may guarantee high chance of seeing and taking good photos of the mountain.
