Dress standards are conservative throughout Africa. To respect this, and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means covering shoulders and no short shorts. We recommend a mixture of loose, lightweight clothing and warm clothing for the evenings. Shorts should be knee-length. Singlets and tank tops are not suitable. Topless sun bathing is unacceptable.
This is a child-friendly tour. Children between the ages of 6 and 11 inclusively are permitted on this tour. Children younger than 6 are permitted at no extra cost, but please make sure you inform our guides of this before you take the tour.
If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides and drivers a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this trip.
After meeting your local guide and having a brief introduction to the day, your Arusha village tour will begin! Catch a local bus to Tengeru, a village located 20 minutes from Arusha, and on arrival, take a walk through the narrow village roads and mingle with locals as they go about their daily lives.
Before lunch, you'll witness coffee and other crops being farmed, and then you'll get to sample local cuisine with lunch at a local family's home.
With your tummies full of deliciousness, it'll be time to try your hand at roasting and grinding your own coffee! When it's all done, you'll get to sample a refreshing cup of your own brew before hopping back on the public bus to return to Arusha.
