Coffee Tour and Water Fall
*Please note that there is an option to do only the coffee tour or only the waterfall hike
Coffee is an integral part of Tanzania’s economy, being one of the largest exported goods out of the country to various places all over the world. For generations now farmers have been harvesting coffee on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro – mostly at small scale, family-owned farms. TrekTZ will take you to visit a small scale coffee farm on the foothills of the mountain where you will spend the day learning about how coffee is made as well as getting to know the dedicated farmers responsible for the coffee before getting a taste of the final product! Coffee is available for purchase. If you put in an order it will be dropped off to us in Moshi and we can make sure it gets to you! Prices are determined by the coffee farm and not by TrekTZ but we can give you an estimate of the price.
During the coffee tour you will take a detour down to the Materuni waterfalls, hiking down past coffee fields. If the weather is warm enough, there will be time to stop and go for a swim in the pool below the waterfalls – some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the region. On the way back up to the farm you will again get the opportunity to see the area where the local Chagga people live.
Please note that the waterfall hike is optional. If you are rushed for time or simply do not want to see it, just let the guide know and you will head back to Moshi after the coffee tour.
