What to expect

Ng'iresi Village is situated 7 kilometers out of Arusha on the green and steep slopes of Mount Meru. The inhabitants of the village are all farmers of the Wa-arusha tribe. The Wa-arusha are family of the Maasai, but have gradually shifted from pastoralism to agriculture. Some Wa-arusha are still living in the traditional bomas, others try hard to build up stone houses; some still depend on their cows, others own large cultivated plots. The village perfectly shows the transition from traditional into modern African life.

Travel into the foothills of Mount Meru and visit a local village of the Wa-arusha tribe. The Wa-arushas, cousins of the Maasai, took roots and unlike the Maasai, are a farming community. Their crops include coffee and bananas and the visit to this community includes a visit to local homes, a church and school. You also have a chance to see some of the farming techniques and perhaps sample mbege, a local beer made from millet and bananas
