Start your mini-adventure with the fascinating drive from Moshi town to the village of Materuni (1800m) above the sea level in Moshi (approximately 30 minutes’ drive). This territory has the perfect mixture of climate and soil to produce some of the best coffee in Africa. While at the village you will get to explore the lives of the Chagga people and do coffee tours to see how the locals grow, harvest, roast, and grind and make a cup of coffee. Normally we ask our clients to try roasting and preparing a fresh cup of coffee the Chagga way.
After a delightful coffee tour, you will head to the waterfalls passing through coffee and banana plantations. Along the way your guide will teach you about local plants and how they are used for food and traditional medicine and how they make local brew, as well as giving you more insight into the local Chagga culture. You will have your packed lunch and spend the rest of the afternoon at the waterfalls. The mountain waters fall straight down in a shimmering curtain to splash in the rippling pool where you can float, take a swim and chill out literally, as these are pure mountain waters and not yet heated by the sun. Afterwards you will be transferred back to your hotel in Moshi.
