Marangu waterfalls and Chagga Cave day trip

This underground facility was built as a hideout for when the Maasai tribes would come to fight or loot the Chagga people. They built a cave big enough for 700 people to hide in and there are more than four kilometers of tunnels. In the tour, you will see how they added ventilation to the cave, stored animals, and how they used a code system to enter the cave. If you didn’t know the code you would be hit with the ‘skull crusher’. We also looked inside a typical Wachagga hut. This is where the family would live and also keep their livestock at night.

Before you reach the pin location when you are driving, you will see the signs on the road that will take you to the tourist office and sign-in center at the caves.
