MATERUNI WATERFALL DAY TRIP
Materuni is the home of the Chagga tribe and is still an authentic tribal village. This charming place is just 15km away from Moshi Town, 99km from Arusha Town,
and is the last village before the Kilimanjaro Mountain National Park.
You will be picked up in Arusha , or Moshi in the morning, by our English-speaking guide, who will drive you to Materuni Village. Upon arrival, you will register at the village office and your trip can begin.
First you will visit the waterfalls, which are around a 40 minute walk away. On the way, your guide will inform you about the culture of the Chagga, village life and explain the surrounding fauna and flora The views are truly breathtaking, and with some luck you will see the summit of
Kilimanjaro. When you reach the waterfalls, you will see that they are more than 80 meters high. The pool at the bottom of the waterfall is an inviting place for a refreshing swim so don’t forget your swimwear!
After having enjoyed the scenery, you slowly return with your guide to Materuni village, where you will experience a traditional Chagga lunch. You also will have the opportunity to taste our local banana beer – definitely not to be missed!
But that’s not all. Next the coffee experience awaits you, Here you will learn how coffee is cultivated, dried, roasted and further processed, You will also 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, Before you say goodbye and return in the
afternoon to Moshi, or Arusha you can savour the coffee you made and appreciate the views of the surrounding rainforest.
