Materuni Village – Coffee and Waterfalls Day Trip Materuni village is a beautifully lush area to visit on the outskirts of Moshi. Here you can really get to grips with the life of the local Chagga people- wandering through the village and passing their homesteads. Located in the picturesque foothills of Kilimanjaro, Materuni has managed to retain its authentic edge over some of the other tourist attractions as it is not one of the routes for climbing Kilimanjaro.

For your day trip you will have two options for transport between Moshi town and the village. For those who really wish to have the ‘real’ experience you can use the local minibuses, along with your guide and possibly a goat, or a sheep amongst the travellers! If you’d prefer to travel more quickly and comfortably you can choose to take a private car. Once you reach the village you will start your coffee tour at a traditional Chagga ‘shamba’ (farm).

Here your guide will explain all aspects of the Chagga homestead including the other crops that they grow aside from coffee. You will get to see how the coffee is produced- from picking the bean to roasting and then drinking a delicious cup yourself. Following your coffee tour you will then take a short hike (make sure to wear some good shoes as it can be muddy up there), passing through local villages to reach the waterfalls. Here you will either have a picnic lunch box or arrive to a full spread of freshly cooked lunch prepared by your own safari chef.

Following lunch you will have the opportunity to take a dip in the refreshing (quite cold!) pools beneath the waterfalls. When you have had your fill of this beautiful place you can start walking back to where you will take the mini-bus or your private car back to East Point Hotel in Moshi (reaching Moshi at approximately 4-5pm).

Materuni Waterfall Daytrip


Materuni Waterfall is a booming waterfall just 15-kilometers from Moshi Town. When combined with a coffee tour in the village, it makes for a perfect day trip before or after your Mount Kilimanjaro climb.
