After breakfast, we set out to experience the cultural diversity of Mto-wa-Mbu, starting at the market and visiting a Chagga family producing banana beer and passing by many different farms. On the way, your guide will introduce you to the various fruits and vegetables growing in the area and explain the irrigation system that sustains local crops. After a delicious, home-cooked meal in a local Mama’s home, we will take a walk starting from the Miwaleni waterfall which falls down from the Rift Valley and has created a green oasis. We will walk towards the Papyrus Lake (approx 5 km), where the Rangi people collect the materials for their mats and baskets. Along the way you can see rice farming and visit Sandawe families who still make traditional bows and arrows for hunting. Late afternoon we enjoy a visit to the Masai Boma for the cultural encounter of a life time. The Masai people are semi-nomadic herders, who choose to live a traditional lifestyle and are known for their distinctive traditional attire. On completion we return to the lodge for dinner & overnight.
Accommodation: Rift Valley Photographic Lodge or similar
