Our Marangu day trip has it all: culture, cuisine, caves and plenty of lively conversation. You’ll even take a dip in a waterfall or two, so bring your cozzie.
Marangu town nestles on the fertile slopes of majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, and it’s brimming with tradition. You’ll explore the culture and terrifying history of the Chagga Tribe (they built those caves for a reason) and you’ll take a short but delightful hike in the lush green landscape to a sparkling waterfall but, don’t worry, you won’t run out of energy because you’ll visit a coffee plantation and have the chance to roast and make your own coffee. The buzz you’ll get from our packed-so-full-it-hurts Marangu day trip won’t just be the caffeine.
If you are on a cultural tour, you would be excited watching to the traditional blacksmiths, visiting nearby caves, waterfalls, coffee plantation areas etc, and the experience of the life style of the local Chagga tribe would mesmerize you.
The word Marangu means a place with too many water streams. There three main waters falls at Marangu. The waterfalls are situated in the slopes of MountKilimanjaro 40 minutes’ drive from Moshi town.
At the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro Ndoro water fall is one of the most popular and largest water fall in the area.Ndoro Waterfall is located in the beautiful country side surrounding Marangu. A one hour hike thru the lush landscapes of Chaga land will take you to the entrance hut of Ndoro, where you will be given a hiking stick to assist you to the base of the fall.
Simple steps, occasionally steep, with banisters consisting of thick tree branches have been edge into the hill and zigzag toward the bottom. The entrance area is well maintained and makes a great rest stop after having climbed back up.Hiking boots are recommended.
Kinukamori is located in Chagga land in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. The crystal clear water that flows from the natural springs of the volcanic rocks makes it one of the best sights in the region to visit before trying for Kilimanjaro. It is a great place for swimming and relaxing.
The refreshing breeze from the waterfall would fill your heart with greater peace which would last with you as an everlasting memory till you breathe last. It takes 20 minutes hike to Kinukamori from Marangu starting point. Along the way you will pass thru beautiful forest and we will be serving a picnic lunch before making our way back to Moshi or continue with other activities depending the program.
