Enjoy the beauty of Tanzania from Uhuru Peak at 19,340 feet. The climb and the Chagga people make this an experience of a lifetime.

Our program with two Chagga villages is our longest running program. The Chagga are from the lower slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro and its misty cloud cover provides the land of the Chagga with dense vegetation, fertile soil and numerous waterfalls. The Chagga are a Bantu, agricultural people, who are known for their banana beer, folklore, blacksmithing and elaborate, 200-year-old, underground war tunnels from the Chagga / Maasai war. Travelers spend about 1 to 4 days in the village immersed in daily Chagga life.

A stay with the Chagga is perfect for Mt. Kilimanjaro climbers, because the villages are about 7,000 feet above sea level. By staying with the Chagga before their climb, climbers are not only having a memorable experience, they are also pre-acclimatizing to the altitude. The stay is also useful for re-hydrating and recovering from jet-lag before the climb. Our climbers who stay in the village at least one day before their climb have a remarkably better and healthier experience on the mountain.

Roll up your sleeves and participate in life alongside the locals... cook traditional food, learn music, study with shamans, or brew banana beer. As you join in and learn, you will turn from tourist to friend. You will not be passing through... you will be truly there.
