Materuni waterfalls are located in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania, near the town of Moshi. The falls are fed by the Kilimanjaro glaciers and are surrounded by lush green forests, coffee plantations, and stunning views of Mount Kilimanjaro.

To reach the waterfalls, visitors must take a scenic hike through the lush rainforest, which is rich in birdlife and wildlife. The hike takes about an hour and a half and is relatively easy, with a few steep sections. Along the way, visitors can enjoy views of the surrounding mountains, coffee farms, and local villages.

The waterfalls themselves are approximately 70 meters high and are surrounded by a beautiful pool that is perfect for swimming. Visitors can take a refreshing dip in the cool waters, and there are several spots for picnicking and relaxing.

Materuni waterfalls are a popular destination for tourists visiting Tanzania, particularly those who are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. They are also a great place to learn about the local Chagga culture and to taste some of the best coffee in Tanzania, as the area is famous for its coffee plantations. Many tours include a visit to the waterfalls as part of their itinerary.
