    • Meet your Iringa tour guide at a pre-decided location at 8:00 AM for registration and a short orientation.

    • Begin your 45-minute drive to the Isimila Stone Age site. Here you may choose to visit the local museum and observe different palaeolithic stone tools dated back to about 1.5 million years. 

    • Head into the Isimila canyon down a steep footpath to see beautiful geological pillar-like formations. The walk is very scenic owing to the reddish tint of the soil and clear skies. Keep an eye out for rare bird and tree species.

    • Take a short break at the site office and drive out to the Kalenga Museum at 11:00 AM.

    • Reach the Kalenga Museum around 11:30 AM. Learn about the history of the Hehe tribe and the story of Chief Mkwawa against the Germans. Get to see Chief Mkwawa's skull and tombs of Hehe chiefs.

    • Return to Iringa at 1:00 PM.

    • After lunch, drive to see the spectacular Igeleke Rock paintings. The ochre-coloured cave art depicts human figures, an elephant, jumping eland, and giraffes hiding in the long grass. Here you will also hear beautiful legends about the rock paintings.

    • Visit WW1-era German and British cemeteries at 3:00 PM and learn more about the impact of the world war on Iringa.

    • Walk up the Gangilonga Mountain at 3:30 pm and take in the view of Iringa town. At the top, enjoy the fresh air and cool blowing breeze, and witness a beautiful sunset in the evening.
