Our 1 Day Materuni village tour includes the following activities, a village walk, a guided waterfall hike, a coffee tour, a Chagga traditional dance demonstration, a sampling of local Chagga Food, and a visit to Kikuletwa Hot springs.

Materuni village is in the Uru area and is the home of the Chagga people. The village is located in the northern part of Moshi town, only 15 km from the town center. Materuni village is also the last village before entering the Kilimanjaro national park and sits approximately 1800 meters above sea level.

The tour begins with a walk (approximately 40 minutes) to a 90m high waterfall. On the way, you will learn about the Materuni village economy, agriculture,  cultural life as well as the surrounding fauna and flora. Please bring a swimsuit & towel as there is a beautiful place to take a dip and you are most welcome to enjoy the natural pool.

Next, you will return back to the village and enjoy some local Chagga food for lunch. The typical Chagga menu includes rice/pilau, local vegetables, and many fruits from the village. 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 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 people – a fun way to immerse in the local culture. 

After the coffee tour in Materuni, your trip continues to the Kikuletwa Hot Springs, which is located about an hour and 20 minutes. The hot springs of Kikuletwa, also known as Chemka Hot Springs, are close to the village of Rundugai.

Although they are called hot springs, the water in Kikuletwa is not truly ‘hot’ but refreshing, as the water source is fed by Kilimanjaro itself. Here you will enjoy the crystal clear, turquoise water which invites you to a refreshing bath, so bring your bathing suit.

We leave the hot springs in the late afternoon (just before sunset) and return relaxed to Moshi. 

1 Day Itinerary of Materuni Village

0830 Hours: You will be picked up in Moshi in the morning, by our English-speaking guide, who will drive you to Materuni Village. Upon arrival, you will register at the village office before the trip begins.

0900 Hours: First, you will visit the waterfalls, which are around a 40-minute walk away. On the way, your guide will inform you about the culture of the Chagga, and village life and explain the surrounding fauna and flora. The views are truly breathtaking, and with some luck, you will see the summit of Kilimanjaro.

When you reach the waterfalls, you will see that they are more than 80 meters high. The pool at the bottom of the waterfall is an inviting place for a refreshing swim so don‘t forget your swimwear!

1300 Hours: After having enjoyed the scenery, you slowly return with your guide to Materuni village, where you will experience a traditional Chagga lunch. You also will have the opportunity to taste our local banana beer – definitely not to be missed!

But that’s not all. Next, the coffee experience awaits you. Here you will learn how coffee is cultivated, dried, roasted, and processed. You will also be invited 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, you can savor the coffee you made and appreciate the views of the surrounding rainforest.

1500 Hours: After the coffee tour in Materuni, your trip continues to the Kikuletwa Hot Springs. The ride to the hot springs takes about an hour and 20 minutes and leads partly over bumpy slopes. First, we go past sugar cane plantations and then to the African scrubland. Dried river beds, baobab, and acacia trees accompany us on our way.

The hot springs of Kikuletwa, also known as Chemka Hot Springs, are close to the village of Rundugai and are one of the most beautiful places in Tanzania to relax. The small pond is surrounded by palm and fig trees with winding roots and the crystal clear, turquoise water invites you to a refreshing bath.

Although they are called hot springs, the water in Kikuletwa is not truly ‘hot’ but refreshing, as the water source is fed by Kilimanjaro itself. Enjoy a wonderful afternoon just as you want, in the sun dozing, chatting with the locals at the small bar, or swimming – you determine the course.

We leave the hot springs in the late afternoon (just before sunset) and return relaxed to Moshi.
