Unforgettable Day Trip to Chagga Village cultural tour

Unforgettable Day Trip to Chagga Village cultural tour, the Chagga have irrigated their fields with the ice water coming down from the glaciers
of Kilimanjaro. The canals are simply dug into the ground or carved into the rock and often are no more than
one foot wide. Also during this period (and still in existence to this day) were the establishment of the
customary rights regulating the times when water can be taken from the canals.
We guide our tour through the unique cultural landscape of the slopes of the Kilimanjaro. You will have the
opportunity to learn how the kilometer-long canals were constructed, an amazing feat in light of the fact that
they had no measuring instruments.

TERRECED FARMING ON THE FARMLAND OF THE CHAGGA

Another cultural achievement of the Chagga is the terraced farming of local crops, planted under old and very
tall rainforest trees. In turn, the banana trees provide the shade for yet other plants such as coffee, corn (maize), chilli peppers and other plants, with room to spare for the grave of the 100-year-old grandfather. This form of farming is used on the Kihamba gardens and is exemplary for the efficient use of water resources.
We will visit a farm of and learn how to harvest bananas (if you guess how you will get a calabash of free
banana beer). If you like, you can till African soil with the local tools and balance a banana bunch on your head.
