Do you like to drink coffee? Then this tour is the right activity for you! In the morning, you start your way to the coffee plantation nestled on the slopes of Mount Meru. On arrival, you will learn how coffee grows and is harvested. You will roast, grind, and drink your own coffee. You will get a nice inside look at Meru culture and learn a lot of interesting facts about coffee. 

Ngongengare Forest Walk - full day (25 EUR) 
This beautiful forest is located close to but not in the Arusha National Park. You will make your way in the morning as you hope to catch an amazing view of Mount Meru.

In the morning, you make your way to a Maasai village. In the village, you will be welcomed by the local Maasai people.

You will also go on a bushwalk learning about the different plants the Maasai use as medicine. If you like, you can learn about local dances, Maa-language, and other traditions.

The hot springs are located on the way to Moshi. From the main road, it will take 30 minutes to the hot springs, which are surrounded by stunning nature.
