Tanzanite Experience and Mining Tours

Travel Route Africa

Tanzanite And Mining Experience In Tanzania

Tanzanite is a rare and valuable gemstone that is found only in Tanzania, specifically in the Merelani Hills near the city of Arusha. If you are interested in learning more about Tanzanite and seeing how it is mined, there are several Tanzanite Experience and Mining Tours available in the area.

The Tanzanite Experience is a popular tour that takes visitors through the process of mining, cutting, and polishing Tanzanite. You will get to see the different types of Tanzanite stones and learn about their properties, including color, clarity, and carat weight. The tour also includes a visit to the Tanzanite museum, where you can see some of the largest and most valuable Tanzanite stones ever found.

Other Tanzanite Mining Tours take visitors to the actual mining sites in the Merelani Hills. These tours offer a unique opportunity to see the process of extracting Tanzanite from the ground and to interact with the local miners who work there. You will also learn about the history of Tanzanite mining in the area and the challenges that miners face in this dangerous and difficult job.

Overall, Tanzanite Experience and Mining Tours offer a fascinating look at one of the world’s most unique and valuable gemstones. Whether you are a gemstone enthusiast or simply curious about the mining process, these tours are a great way to learn about Tanzanite and its importance to Tanzania’s economy and culture.

Day Trip Tour

After breakfast at the hotel or pick from the airport the tour will depart approximately 60 kilometers with the side view of slopes and Mount Kilimanjaro linger on the horizon, unmistakably south of the Kilimanjaro international airport (JRO) direct to the Mererani mining area. This is predominantly the location where the precious well known Tanzanite mineral was discovered and peculiarly the place where only the Tanzanite can be found in the whole world.

The precious peculiar Tanzanite stone is found about 1000 meters deep down underground, on a basically volcanic igneous rock. Furthermore, at the mining area you will have a high time to descend down the mine and amazingly explore how the mining process undergoes as well as explore the machinery and spend time with the miners on site and discover how the day starts and ends in the mining area.

To clarify, this is a full day activity lunchbox or get some lunch in a local restaurant around the area. Late afternoon you will drive back to Arusha town or Airport.

Price:  350$ PER PERSON FOR A GROUP

well organised trip and affordable prices I loved my trip up Kilimanjaro withTravel Route. I was picked up at the airport by Emmanuel. The hotel I stayed at the day before the trek was nice and even had a pool which was good for relaxing before the climb. I went on the Machame route, which was great. It's beautiful and the climb was manageable. The guides were encouraging, helpful, cheerful and knowledgeable. The tents we stayed in on the climb were nice and we even had sleeping mats, which made for a comfortable sleep. The food on the climb was plentiful and better than I expected it to be. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend Travel Route to anyone thinking about about climbing Kilimanjaro.
