We do mine tours to the Merelani mines where we find Tanzanite gemstones and Lemshuku where we can find green garnet (tsavorite). The mines are about 50 to 130 kms outside Arusha town with rough roads.
The mining areas are very primitive.
You will get a rare chance to see a working Tanzanite or Tsavorite mine, after reaching the mine you will get a brief presentation on mining of gemstone. You will have chance to see natural Rough and cut gemstones.
