What we love about this adventure
• CROSS-CULTURAL MELTING POT_Mto-wa-mbu village
Bustling with approx. 120 tribes from around Tanzania, the little town of Mto Wa Mbu is famous for its crops of rice and the distinctive red bananas that Tanzania is known for. Cultural diversity is seen in the various entrepreneurial ways including a farmer from Kigoma producing palm oil from palm trees that he purchased from the shores of Lake Tanganyika, and the Rangi creating colorful, beautiful mats and baskets using papyrus from the lakes and rivers. A half-day tour of the town in the company of a local guide gives travelers the opportunity to interact with local farmers, as well as artisans, craftsmen and painters. A sampling of the local banana beer adds a unique taste of local flavor followed by a delicious local lunch.
