We will begin at Tanz-Hands Cafe at 8 AM, and you can fill up on delicious baked goods, coffee, and tea before the hike begins. Once the hike has begun, we will start by passing through riverine habitats with majestic 40+ meter tall Newtonia Trees, where you'll get the opportunity to see Black and White Colobus Monkeys, Sykes Monkeys, and Vervet Monkeys in the same area. From there we will arrive at the Ngare Sero dam, which hosts a variety of water birds such as Egyptian Geese, African Jacana, and if you're lucky, a Grey-Crowned Crane. We will then make our way through 'Sawaka Farm', which is a former colonial coffee plantation with a myriad of springs, varying topography, and astonishing views over the Maasai Steppe. There are a multitude of farm animals that we will have a chance to interact with such as cows, sheep, goats, and horses. After climbing through 'Sawaka' we will be coming closer and closer to Mt. Meru and opportunities to see Mt. Kilimanjaro (if there are no clouds)! From here we will pass through 'Sanga Nane Village' where you will see the Agro-forestry farms of the Meru tribe. From here we will be passing through a cool, quiet forest, which is adjoining to Arusha National Park. This trail will lead us back through 'Kwa Mangusha Village' where we will return to the homestay by taxi. Food and beverage will await you and then, let the stories begin
Dette er inkludert
Home cooked Swahili meal along with local snacks.
Coffee and tea available at the end of the hike at our homestay.
I'm a permaculturalist with several years of experience exploring the foothills of Mt. Meru. I've partnered together with a Maasai guide, Baraka who has extensive expertise in hiking and local culture. We have developed an optimal network of off-the-beaten path trails around Usa River that we are now opening up to Airbnb experiences. Baraka and I are passionate about the unique flora and fauna of Usa River which is surprisingly diverse and accessible.
