Chagga Caves and Historical Tours – Tanzania

The Chagga are Bantu-speaking indigenous Africans and the third largest ethnic group in Tanzania. They traditionally live on the southern and eastern slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru and near the town called Moshi. One of the highlights of our tour was the Chagga caves and their history. The caves (everybody calls them caves but they’re actually tunnels that were dug out) about 200 years ago dug out by the Chagga’s, to protect themselves from attacks by the Maasai. The guide takes you into the dugout caves to experience a whole new underground world of the Chagga tribe back then.
