Details van Mto Wa Mbu village walk

Mto Wa Mbu, situated on the main road between Serengeti national park and the Ngorongoro crater, surrounded by breathtaking scenery is believed to be home of representatives of all Tanzania's 120 tribal groups.
This melting pot of cultures is home to around 20000 people, that form a flourishing farming community.
Observe their farms, milling machines, schools, markets and churches. Visit the village banana plantation and a youth art group, where you'll see different painting techniques. Enter a workshop watching skilful members of the Makonde tribe carve detailed figurines, masks and household objects out of wood. Do visit a local ‘bar’ to try Mbege. A traditional banana and millet beer is brewed and drunk mainly by the Chagga tribe. After a brief refreshment don't miss the bustling local market. Take in the intoxicating scents of spices, and feast your eyes on colourful fruit and vegetable stalls. Your guide is from the village, so seize the opportunity to see the community through their eyes and ask detailed questions.
