Kilimanjaro Marathon & Ndoro falls tour

Kilimanjaro marathon is a run on the foothills of the highest mountain in Africa, Mt Kilimanjaro. The route leaves Moshi stadium and heads the town and then along the main road to dares salaam for approximately 8-9km.
The route passes through many smallholding farms, villages, banana and coffee plantations and patches of forest, providing great excitement to the residents who give ample vocal support.
SATURDAY 29TH FEB 2020
We begin our tour to Moshi to participate in the Kilimanjaro lager marathon with a tour to Ndoro waterfall and Chagga caves on the slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro. Located in the beautiful countryside of Moshi surrounded by lush landscapes, splendid and exotic plants you will find this hidden waterfall. Ndoro waterfall is one of the most popular and largest waterfalls in the area. The source of the water comes directly from the glacier on top of Kilimanjaro.
The feeling of being inside these chilling waters whose source is from Mt Kilimanjaro glaciers is bewildering and striking.
After spending time in the waterfall, we begin the journey back to the village. The trail takes us to one of the Chagga villages that are surrounded by coffee and banana plantations. Here the village cook has a reputation of having one of the best African pure organic cuisines, an African buffet that is delicious beyond description. After lunch, we descend to Chagga caves that are hidden within the village.
About two hundred years ago there was a severe drought in Tanzania and people living in the lower parts of the country suffered heavily. The Maasai were the most affected by this drought because of their cattle.
When drought persisted, the Maasai decided to seize fertile lands of the Chagga community. The Chagga community decided to build an underground channel to hide their families and livestock from the Maasai. It took 54 years to complete the channels equipped with kitchen, bedrooms, firewood store, streets and Boma la Ng’ombe.
After a tour of the caves, we return to the village for coffee and banana wine sampling. In the evening we drive to Hotel for evening dinner and entertainment.
Moshi a metropolitan town is very impressive; it seems on weekends the whole town is out enjoying themselves after a long week.
