Materuni Day Trip

Materuni is the home of the Chagga people and is still an authentic tribal village. This charming place is just 13km away from Moshi Town and it is the last village before the Kilimanjaro National Park.

In the morning we will pick you at 9.00 am from your Hotel to Materuni village . First you will visit Materuni waterfall, which is around a 40-minutes’ walk. 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 swim wear!


Next the coffee tour 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, you can savour the coffee you made and appreciate the views of the surrounding montane rainforest.
