The tour begins early in the morning after breakfast. You will be picked from your hotel in Arusha and driven about 80 kilometres to Materuni Waterfalls, a journey of 2 hours. You will arrive at Materuni in the late morning and after completing registration at the village office your tour will begin. Materuni is the home of the Chagga tribe of Tanzania which is still an authentic tribal village. It is the last village before Kilimanjaro National Park.
Your first visit will be at the waterfalls, a 40 minute walk. On the way, your guide will inform you about the village and the culture of the Chagga people. The waterfalls are 80 meters high with a beautiful swimming pool.
After enjoying yourself at the pool you will be guided back to Materuni village, where you will sample a traditional Chagga lunch and local banana beer testing before learning more about coffee, specifically how coffee is planted, cultivated, harvested, dried, roasted and processed. You will be invited to try grinding coffee, which is traditionally accompanied by Chagga songs and dances.
In the evening you will leave the village and return to the your hotel in Arusha
