The Chagga people live in the magnificent foothills of the Kilimanjaro; a tribe rich in history, ingenuity and legends. On this day trip, you will not only learn about their folklore and history but also get to see the wondrous facets of their daily lives.
In the morning, we will collect you from your hotel and take you to Marangu, which lies in the fertile hills of Kilimanjaro where an accredited village guide will be waiting for you. Firstly, the guide will show you the Chagga Live Museum where you will get a good insight into the traditional lifestyle of this agricultural society as well as the family history. After the visit to the museum, the guide will lead you through the coffee and banana plantations to a spectacular waterfall. On the way, he will point out the fauna and flora of the region. At the waterfall, you will have lunch and if you fancy you may take a plunge in the refreshing waters of the waterfall. In the afternoon, you will be driven to the village of Mamba. This small village is famous for its caves, which were once used to hide the women and children for weeks during the Chagga – Masai wars. At Mamba, you will also visit a local blacksmith who still forges spearheads in the traditional manner. Late in the afternoon, we will take you back to your hotel.
