Kilimanjaro: Materuni Waterfalls and Coffee Tour with Lunch

1. Kilimanjaro: Materuni Waterfalls and Coffee Tour with Lunch

After pickup in Moshi Town or Arusha, drive to Materuni Village with your English-speaking guide. Located just 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) from Moshi Town, Materuni is still an authentic tribal village home to the Chagga tribe and the last village before the Kilimanjaro National Park. Upon arrival, register at the village office then begin your trip. First, visit the waterfalls, which are around a 40-minute walk away. On the way, learn about the culture of the Chagga, village life, and the surrounding fauna and flora with your guide. Admire the breathtaking views and, with luck, catch sight of the summit of Kilimanjaro. When you reach the waterfalls, marvel at cascades that are more than 80-meters (262-feet) high. Take advantage of the inviting pool at the bottom of the waterfall and take a refreshing dip. Don't forget your swimwear! After enjoying the scenery, slowly return to Materuni Village with your guide. Once there, experience a traditional Chagga lunch and have the opportunity to taste the local banana beer. Next, the coffee experience awaits you. Learn how coffee is cultivated, dried, roasted and further processed. Receive an invitation 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 and return in the afternoon to Moshi or Arusha, savor the coffee you made and appreciate the views of the surrounding rainforest.

What people are saying about Moshi

I had one day prior to joining my Kilimanjaro group to explore the local area so decided on the waterfalls and coffee tour. I got promptly collected by a driver from my hotel who took me to Materuni village; he spoke great English and gave me information en route. On arrival at materuni, I met a local guide who took me to the waterfall, which was about an hour hike. Beautiful scenery and the guide was amazing! After the hike, I got to make coffee with the locals and enjoy a traditional lunch at one of the village houses - highly recommend!!

Sympathetic and competent guide. Actually, you stay outside the national park because the entrance fee for one day is not worth it. Due to rainy weather, all paths were quite slippery and bathing below the waterfall was not possible. Coffee farm: Good explanations and some show when preparing coffee from the bean. (Banana) beer tasting on the roof terrace in Moshi is not possible, as the restaurant is closed due to Corona

We were picked up in Arusha and driven to Materuni Village where our tour started. The guide spoke good English and told a lot of interesting during the tours. It was a lovely trip and well worth the money. Making coffee with a local family on their farm was a delight, and the coffee tasted heavenly. We had the opportunity to buy a bag of coffee beans and local paintings with us. Highly recommended.

The Guide was super friendly and had an answer to every question. From my side, it's an absolutely must do, to go to the Waterfalls and see the coffee process. The People from the Village are very friendly and the food, is super great. Many thanks to the guide and Thomas, who was driving us.
