Day 1Arusha to Mererani Mining area to Arusha

After an early pick up  in Arusha, you will venture out around 70 kilometers to the slants of Mount Kilimanjaro, only south of the Kilimanjaro international airport  to the Mererani region. This is the ideal spot where the Tanzanite mineral was discovered . This valuable stone is found around 1000 meters underground, on a volcanic molten stone. You will slide down the mine to investigate how the mining system happens, as you investigate the apparatus and invest energy with the excavators on location. This is an entire day action with takeoffs from Arusha town.
