Coffee and Cheese Tour

PRICE:  from $150 pp

A perfect day out to discover the local culture of the Arusha region. The Mulala village is a typical rural setting on the southern slopes of Mount Meru, surrounded by spectacular views. It lies at about 1 700m above sea level and you wind your way up to the mountain through a maze of lush, green vegetation dotted with small farms. Several women of the village have set up small co-operatives in order to support economic activities and start new income generating projects.

Take a walk through the Mountain Green Coffee farm, learn about the coffee plantation and participate in the local way of de-fruiting and drying coffee seeds.

Of course you can sample a cup of homemade coffee which you’ll prepare yourself. Afterwards walk through the village criss-crossing banana farms up to a height of about 1 800m, from where you can enjoy the spectacular view of Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro, the village of Usa River and Lake Duluti.

After a local lunch in a private home you visit the Mountain Green cheese making unit, where cheeses like Gouda, Cheddar and Feta are produced in the local way, partly using biogas.

PRICE:

$150 for 1 person
$180 for 2 people
