After breakfast your guide will come to pick you at your hotel in Moshi/Arusha and drive to Materuni Village (40minutes from Moshi)/Arusha (2hours). After arrival at the village, your guide will welcome you and after registration at the village office, your guide will give you a brief itinerary about the tour and your tour can start to waterfall which is the highest (90m) in the Kilimanjaro region for a walk of 45-minutes. The base of the waterfall provides an attractive natural pool for a stimulating swim in a safe tranquility pool that cascades in your whole body and for sure you are going to love this. On the way, your guide will inform you about the culture of the Chagga village life, flora and fauna. The sceneries are truly magnificent and with some luck you will see the roof of Africa (5895m).

After having enjoyed the scenery, you will slowly return with your guide to a Chagga home so you can have a rest for a while (5-10mimutes) before having a traditional Chagga hot lunch. Next the coffee ceremony tour awaits you. This ceremony is accompanied with Chagga songs and dances – a fun way to engage you in a traditional way of making coffee. During this process you will learn and participate on how the coffee is cultivated, dried, roasted, grinded and further processed in a traditional way until you have it finally in your cup while appreciating the views of the surrounding Kilimanjaro montane rainforest. Once the tour is over you will pass to a local bar for a “one for the road” for banana beer testing – absolutely something not to be skipped out to cheer-up a long good day..
