You will visit a local community in Rombo and visit a small museum with local products and historical tools to understand more about Chagga traditions.
The Chagga area is traditionally divided into a number of chiefdoms. They are culturally related to the Pare, Taveta, and Taita peoples. They follow a patrilineal system of descent and inheritance. Their way of life is based primarily on agriculture, using irrigation on terraced fields and oxen manure. Although bananas are their staple food, they also cultivate various crops, including yams, beans, and maize. In agricultural exports, they are best known for their Arabica coffee, which is exported to American and European markets, resulting in coffee being a primary cash crop.
Our kilimanjaro and safari tour guide will then lead you through the coffee and banana plantations. On the way, he will tell you and point out the fauna and flora of the region then you will have lunch, after lunch you will get the chance to experience chagga traditional dance.
A very pleasing and welcoming dance and songs from villagers will give you a notable experience with the Chaggas. These songs varies from wedding, other ceremonial and special songs to emphasizing hard working especially in farming and how to treat well the community members. Visitors will directly participate in these activities and with the help of a well trained guide these songs will be translated for the visitors.
Late in the afternoon, we will take you back to your hotel.
