          After breakfast, our driver-guide will pick you from your hotel and drive to Kilimanjaro National Park Londorossi Gate which is located to the western side of the mountain and up through the forests to the Londorossi Gate at an altitude of 2,100m. You will then start your day trek through tropical montane forests, home to a variety of animals and birdlife. With the help of your guide, you may spot colobus monkeys, crested turacos and more. You will proceed up to the vast Shira Plateau, at 3,400m. You will enjoy your lunch then continue on to Shira 1 Camp, Lion Gorge and the foothills of the Shira Pinnacles. Kilimanjaro’s iconic snow-covered table top, Kibo Peak, should be visible from here, as well as neighbouring glaciers. It is also possible to drive all the way up to the Shira Plateau and then gently explore the surrounding areas on foot if you’re not fit to do longer trek. After taking pictures and enjoy the closer view of the mountain you will start descending to Londorossi gate and later drive to your hotel in Moshi.

          Amazing experience
          I had a fantastic time on the waterfalls and coffee tour! The waterfalls were beautiful, and the hike was refreshing. The coffee tour was fascinating, and the tasting session was delicious. Our guide was excellent – very knowledgeable and friendly. He made the tour enjoyable and shared interesting stories. I highly recommend this tour. It’s a great mix of nature and learning. Five stars!

          Great experience with Agostino
          We had a great experience going to Materuni village and walking in town. A cool adventure getting to the waterfall which was amazing. And one of the highlights: the ‘coffee party’ with the local family. That was a blast. Thanks to our great tour guide Agustino for giving us a great experience.

          Enjoyable day
          An enjoyable day overall. Our driver and our guide were great. Interesting to walk through the village. Bit of a hard sell at the coffee tour but still interesting.

          Professional Safari tours. Tanzania
          Two park Safari- imagination exceeded. Fantastic guides talking through park history, very knowledgeable about animals and best locations to view, constant communication with other guides to ensure best trip. Knowledge of local Plant life and medicinal uses for local tribes. And absolutely delightful way to spend tow days. Their recommendation for hotel was The Green Parrot at Mto wa Mbu which was a beautiful well maintained place and not a mosquito in site.

          Wonderful waterfalls
          The tour guide - Joel was very good and professional and patient with us as we were quite slow to trekking through the uneven and slippery terrain. The roads leading to the hotsprings is very very bad extremely uneven and no paved road that we have to travel

          Amazing time at Materuni
          Augustino was a very kind gentleman who answered all my questions and was very polite during the whole trip. He knew answered to all of my questions. It was a very informative trip on how coffee is made but also with a brilliant view of the waterfalls too. The food offered was very nice. I had a very good time and I could recommend it to others who are looking to do something during the day.

          Great tour for a first day in Tanzania
          The guided waterfall hike and coffee tour was a great way to spend our first day in Tanzania. The views on the hike were beautiful, and the tour guide was very knowledgable and kept the perfect slow pace for us given our jetlag. The coffee tour was really interesting, more to meet the local people and see how they live. Was great to be able to support them by buying some delicious coffee and banana beer!

          A wonderfully different cultural experience in the foothills of Kilimanjaro
          This was the most amazing day trip! Gilly, a fabulously informed guide to the Chagga area. The visit to the Chagga village was great, made so special by the local women's storytelling. They prepared, roasted and ground my very own cup of Arabica coffee in front of me. One of the best coffee's I've ever drunk! The shop in the village had many local crafts for sale. I like buying locally. Lunch was out in the forest at a place called Kilema Paradise. And it certainly was! Wonderful lunch at a wonderful location finishing off a wonderful day.

          Very interesting and beautiful tour to Marangu gate, Chagga village and Ndoro waterfall
          I would recommend the Marangu day trip with KLM safaris! First, you go to the Marangu gate of Kilimanjaro National Park, which is fun to see and take some pictures! The guide also knew a hidden little valley nearby, which was very beautiful and had a little waterfall. Afterwards, we went to the Chagga village, which was very interesting and I learned a lot! Here, a tasteful lunch was provided as well. Finally, we walked through beautiful nature to the Ndoro waterfall, which was absolutely stunning. We were the only ones there, and the waterfall itself and the surrounding nature were amazing. As always, everything was well arranged and taken care of.

          Excellent, early tour to stunning waterfall and fun coffee tour
          I would recommend the Materuni waterfall and coffee tour with KLM Safaris! We left early and on time and we were the first to arrive at the waterfall so we had the whole place for ourselves! This was an amazing experience to enjoy the waterfall in all its calmness. Everything was well arranged. The guide is knowledgeable. The coffee tour afterwards is also a fun activity as they explain everything step by step, show it and even sing songs in the meantime. You also get to taste the coffee and have the opportunity to buy some coffee.

          aggressive village
          Materuni is a very aggressive, unfriendly village. "Guides" follow you and harass you that you shall pay, or ... I turned back.

          Amazing trip with KLM Safaris: relaxing and beautiful nature
          Had a great time at the hot springs with KLM safaris. Everything was taken care of from beginning to end. You get picked up from your accommodation on time, and you can decide for yourself how long you want to stay at the hot springs. I had a relaxing time swimming around in the hot springs, a beautiful oasis, and jumping in the water. Augustino from KLM Safaris watched my stuff while I was in the water. We went early in the morning, which I recommend as it was less crowded then! Afterwards, a tasteful hot lunch was arranged at the local restaurant as well. I would recommend this trip with KLM Safaris!

        Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with KLM Safaris was an incredible quest journey that really deserves to be done repeatedly. As a landscape ecology and nature conservation scientist we actually did a lot, we hiked up to Mandara hut then we soared further to Maundi Crater watching a very nice view from the top of the crater to inside. Along the way to Mandara hut we saw beautiful mother nature (salient diversity of flora and fauna). The trip was also good for healthy exercising as weel getting an opportunity to discuss further research projects that can be carried out within the mountain landscape. We were nicely treated and the services were gorgeous from the start to the end. Millions of thanks to Dr. Gilead Minja and his team for generosity quality service and caring. I and my colleagues from Germany and Belgium looking forward to work with you in future
