The Materuni Village is the last village before entering the Kilimanjaro national park and sit approximately 1’900m above sea level. Twanga Touring Co. (Formally known as, Materuni Village Tours (MVT)) is one of the registered cultural tourism programs in Tanzania Registered with Tanzania Tourists Board. Twanga Touring believes in preserving and respecting the traditional culture of the local people. We are known for working with the local people and that is why we only employ local, Materuni Village, tour guides. We, at Twanga Touring, are of the Chagga tribe. Most of our tours have a Chagga element to them. We love our culture and believe it should be shared with everyone. By touring with us you also give back to the local community (one we are sure will remain in your heart for a very long time). 10% of all profit goes directly to our community foundation. This Foundation supports those who are most in need. We give to local clinics, buy food and other necessities, pay for schooling, and home rehabilitations We also believe in preserving the natural environment of the village. All ingredients for lunch and the cooking class are organically grown in the Materuni village. We pay fair market prices for all goods used during our tours. Again, we give you more opportunity to give back, by allowing you to buy goods made from things found in our soil. You be able to purchase locally made items such as roasted coffee beans, wooden coffee cups, milk jugs, and tote bags made of banana leaves. At Twanga Touring Co. we pride ourselves on providing our clients with a once in a life time experience of cultural tourism and immersion. Our well-educated and professional tour guides understand the importance of customer care. We Promise you will be in good hands.
