Fantastic place to stay and a memorable experience with great people
When visiting the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro I stayed for three days at this Bed & Breakfast. It's a nice place for travellers that seek local conditions by seeking to avoid the tourist hustle and bustle while even seeing village farming in action. It is a small farm with (when I was there) a few cows, goats, rabbits, chickens and crop land with maize, vegetables, bananas, coffee (neglected due to low world market price) and pretty flowers around the house. The place is run by a motivated ladies group and the main host lady lives at the location (it is her farm). She speaks quite reasonable English and she is very nice with good local food, beer and other drinks available on request (she runs no bar!), coffee and tea readily available, no wifi but good internet ‘in the air’. The lady is quite nice in helping to go on a very scenic 1-3 hour walk (depending on how far much you want to use local buses and motorbikes) to the a local market and tourist location. The place is best suited, in my view, for people (individuals and small groups up to .. persons) that want to relax and breathe the local atmosphere for a few days. A kilometre of meditative walk from this place one has a spectacular view of the Mt Kilimanjaro (if not clouded).

How to get there: Machame Nkweshoo Cultural Tour is located in Machame Nkweshoo, a 10 minute drive from the junction next to Kilimanjaro Machine Tools along the Arusha-Moshi Highway. The junction is a 20 minutes from Moshi and 30 minute drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport and one hour drive from Arusha.

She can arrange for pick up from nearby bus stops or tourist locations. The place is a few kilometres from where the main trail starts to the top of the Kilimanjaro (she can arrange transport for that too).

The most unmissable part of my Africa holiday
I stayed with Stella in August 2016, and she arranged for me to visit schools, a local waterfall, make delicious banana soup and see some of village life. I got an insight into local life that I would not have got any other way, and of all the things I did in Africa this is the part of my holiday that was the most memorable. I don't hesitate to recommend it if you want to go beyond the pampered tourist route.

Machame Nkweshoo Cultural Tourism, Kilimanjaro Tanzania
My recent visit to Machame Nkweshoo was full of great cultural celebrated moments. I was intrigued by the native's history in which their culture is closely linked to the colonial history in the country and that the locals have, in some areas, remained consistent with their traditional way of life.

The Ntondolo cave where I had a chance to hike to, gives visitors a history of the locals which subjected them into conflicts with the Maasai's. Evidently, the signs that they won the battle is a sure fact that they have remained in their areas since.

Unmoved by the current global development their local market area at Kalari is a historica one which has been kept for over four decades, in which locals from different parts in the surrounding neighbourhood come every Thursday to sell and buy different items.

The church in the area including the hospital all show a hallmark of a rich history in the are that is worth the visitors time and experience.

The homestay is one of the best with basic facilities supplied in the rural home with food menus that are local and tantalizing. I can;t wait for my next visit to Machame Nkweshoo where the fresh Mount Kilimanjaro air makes visitors enjoy the hiking experience.

A memorable experience in Machame with Stella and her family
My son and I were on a tour in Tanzania, mainly to give him a feel of what Africa is really about. I had lived in Africa for 3 years and had fallen in love with it.

We had toured the Selous reserve and decided to skip the Serengeti which could be full of tourists. Instead we decided to visit local populations and learn their habits. We have therefore spent 2 days at where we ate, lived, danced, walked and experienced everyday life. We have also roasted coffee and went to the local school to see how the kids in the area learn the basics.

The whole experience was amazing. Two years later, my son and I still sing the songs that we have danced upon in Machame village and still remember the banana and meat soup that we were served.

We definitely recommend paying the Machame cultural centre a visit. You will not regret it.
