Immerse yourself in the breathtaking natural beauty of Mount Kilimanjaro exploring the Materuni Waterfalls located at the foot of the volcano. Truly captivating! Around 20 -30 minutes outside of Moshi are Materuni waterfalls. As this trip is so close by it is ideal for those people with limited time but who would still like to see some of nature and beauty that this region of Tanzania has to offer. These falls are smaller than Ndoro, but still pretty impressive at 150 meters high and a sight worth seeing.
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Arusha at 9:30 am and set off on the short twenty-minute drive to the village of Materuni, located in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. Accompanied by an English-speaking guide, we'll embark on a hiking route to the Materuni Waterfalls. The trail, which is around an hour-long, will take us through lush green vegetation and past the houses of the Chaga people who live here, one of the largest ethnic groups in Tanzania. During your trek, your guide will tell you all about the Chaga way of life. On reaching the waterfall, you'll be left speechless by the sheer size of the falls. You'll have the opportunity here to enjoy a refreshing dip in the natural pool below.
We'll take a break at midday to eat our picnic lunch, and then once we've restored our energy levels we'll walk over to a nearby coffee plantation to learn all about this delicious locally grown product. From the bean to the cup, we'll see how natural coffee is roasted, and of course - you'll get to taste it too! At the end of the day, we'll return to the car and make the return journey to Moshi, where you'll be dropped back off at your hotel at around 5:30 pm.
Thank you so much for the amazing trips and for the interesting guides! We loved the vacation that we took last month. It was exactly as we imagined it, and even better! Again their attention to us and the ability to adjust, was remarkable! We highly recommend using Kilimanjaro Dreamers and will use them again on future adventures!!
Kilimanjaro Dreamers is a local safari tour operator based in Arusha, Tanzania. My wife and I went on our first Safari in July 2019, they are super-dependable and trustworthy. It feels really good to be putting money directly into the hands of local companies and not have fat margins skimmed off by middlemen. For me, this is really important.
It's our dream to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and submit on the top of Africa 5895m uhuru peak. We took 7 Days Machame route and it was the best route to climb Mount Kilimanjaro though most of us were never serious trekkers but yes, we had a common thing: Love for nature and trained for 3 months prior to this trip. It's the adventure of a lifetime. Kilimanjaro Dreamers really put their attention to details I can recommend them highly enough!
Thank you once again all at Kilimanjaro Expedition for the unforgettable days! Thomas Jonas for all info, fast responding and arranging. A save feeling to be picked up en brought back at the airport. Thomas, I’ve learned a lot about the country, Kilimanjaro, vegetation and the culture. You’re a great guide and person! Hillary, it was pleasure in the parcs driving around with you and to spot a diversity of beautiful animals so near.
We did the 7-day Lemosho trek and a 4-day safari. It was an absolutely amazing trip. Kilimanjaro Dreamers out did themselves with the best guides, chef and porters. Our guides, Jonas and Hillary, were extremely knowledgeable, professional, personable and capable. We really enjoyed getting to know them throughout the trip.
When it comes to trekking and safari, Tanzania really does have it all. It is the kind of place which experienced safari and trekking hands could easily visit for or five times, but it also makes for a fantastic first-time Safari.
