We have thorough knowledge of the region and provide the best experiences. Whether on a budget or wanting something more luxurious, Hillborn Organic Coffee will provide you with a trip of a lifetime.
You will be picked up in Moshi in the morning, by our English-speaking guide, who will drive you to Materuni Village. Upon arrival, you will register at the village office and your trip can begin.
First you will visit the waterfalls, which are around a 40 minute walk away. On the way, your guide will inform you about the culture of the Chagga, village life and explain the surrounding fauna and flora. The views are truly breathtaking, and with some luck you will see the summit of Kilimanjaro. When you reach the waterfalls, you will see that they are more than 80 meters high. The pool at the bottom of the waterfall is an inviting place for a refreshing swim so don‘t forget your swimwear!
*Coffee Plantation Tour:*
After the waterfalls, you will visit the coffee plantation where your guide along with other team members will demonstrate the coffee making process from the beginning to the end. It is the most unique and unforgettable lifetime experience.

Another very important attribute of our company which is extremely close to our hearts is the charity work. The charity organization currently has two projects underway.
The first project addresses women’s menstrual health. Most women especially those who come from poor family backgrounds are unable to buy normal pads every month. The project aims to educate women about their menstruation cycle and promote best practices to improve their health and wellbeing. We also provide these women with health kits which include reusable pads that can last many years and therefore are more affordable than normal period pads.
The second project aims to help poor communities and people in villages who are unable to afford basic needs. We go to the villages and look for people in need such as the elderly, orphans and widows. Once we have them on list; we go back to provide them with some of basic needs including rice, cooking oil, soap, clothes and medicine for those who they are sick.
The Charity Organization is a result of many years of hard work. It is only beginning of many more projects to come. It is truly a blessing to have the opportunity work with and give back to our community. If visitors wish, they can choose to visit these communities and also volunteer to help out with this organization
