"ASILI SAS" Daytrip
MATERUNI WATERFALL & COFFEE PLANTATION (1 day)
Maximum group size: 5 people
Experience an unforgettable day on the slopes of Kilimanjaro.
You will be picked up by us early in the morning and we will then drive together to the charming village of Materuni which is located above Moshi in the mountains. Materuni is still an authentic tribal village and the home of the Chagga. The Chagga are one of Tanzania's largest ethnic groups. They are also called "the guardians of Kilimanjaro".
You will get a first impression during the journey. Often you can take a look into houses, front gardens and everyday Tanzanian life on the streets.
The adventure can now begin. The hike to the Materuni waterfall starts right next to the coffee plantation. The magical path leads you through valleys and a tropical rainforest, past coffee, bananas and avocado plantations. We will be on the road for about 45 minutes until we reach the waterfall (please bring sturdy shoes)
Here you have the opportunity to swim in a small natural pool in front of the waterfall. With a bit of luck you will see the summit of Kilimanjaro while you take a refreshing swim (please remember to bring your swimwear). The particularly impressive thing about this waterfall is the beautiful rainbow that forms near the bottom through the spray. A special kind of natural phenomenon. Enjoy your packed lunch before or after bathing. After you have enjoyed nature sufficiently, we slowly return to the village. If you want, you can try a local banana beer.
The next highlight is the coffee plantation. In the middle of the beautiful rainforest landscape, you will learn how coffee is grown, dried, roasted and processed. Learn about the individual production steps from the freshly harvested coffee bean to the packaged powder. Enjoy the songs and dances of the Chagga while the coffee is freshly prepared for you. At the end, reward yourself with a special cup of coffee before saying goodbye and returning again.
