msonga – chagga huts ©muokikioko2016

Traditionally banana farmers, the chagga of Northern Tanzania one of the largest tribes of Tanzania built huts known as ‘msonga’

Most interesting about these ‘msonga’ is you could ‘songa’/move from one hut to another without stepping out of the hut…the secret?

highly spiritual, the chagga are known to mix christianity with traditional beliefs (like most africans) 🙂 and mostly occupy the areas around ‘moshi’ and ‘arusha’.
