Meet an English speaking tour guide at the reception of Impala hotel at 08:00 a.m. After a brief introduction meeting, travel to Moshi, around an hour’s drive from Arusha. In Moshi we will meet the very special kids of the Amani Children's Home. Amani supports street children giving them a safe place to stay and educational and emotional support.
Check out the new school which has been built with the help of donors and be inspired by this project which is changing children's lives. From Moshi, drive on to the Kilimanjaro base town of Marangu, about 40 minutes away. We then embark on a walking tour of Mshiri village, the base for the Village Education Project, where we witness the day-to-day life of the Chagga people, long established as crop-growers on the fertile slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro.
We visit their homes, walk around the shamba (farm), visit the primary school as well as the other institutions where local young people are taught various skills. Lunch provides an opportunity to sample Chagga food, which is very filling. We also visit nearby waterfalls and stop to admire the view of the plains below. We return to our vehicle for the journey back to Arusha.
