Materuni Waterfall & Coffee Tour
Experience local Materuni village life with a visit to our beautiful waterfall & coffee ceremony.
When you arrive at the village office, you will meet our English speaking village guide who will welcome you to Materuni village and brief you.
Then you will take a walk to the waterfall (approx. 40 minutes). On the way you will learn about the village economy, agriculture as well as cultural life and also the guide will explain the surrounding fauna and flora.
Upon arrival at the 90m high waterfall, you’ll be fascinated by this unique environment. Please bring swim-suit & towel as there is a beautiful place to take a dip and you are most welcome to enjoy the natural pool.
When you are ready to continue, you will walk back to Mama Agnes’ home for local Chagga food lunch and our coffee experience.
The typical Chagga menu includes rice/pilau, local vegetables and many fruits from the village. For sure, we take care of special food requirements.
You will also experience the traditional coffee processing technique and participate in the process of making organic Materuni coffee. Here you will also learn how to coffee is cultivated, dried and roasted. While you produce your own cup of coffee, you are invited to listen, dance and sing with the Chagga women – a fun way to immerse in the local culture.
Finally, if you are interested in a demonstration of the banana beer making process or visiting a local school or typical Chagga house, we are more than happy to adjust our tour based on your personal preferences. Just let us know.
