Explore the dusty roads of Tanzania on a safari adventure
On clear days in Moshi, you can see the snow-capped peak of the highest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro, towering in the distance. Kilimanjaro attracts mountaineers to this Tanzanian town, along with adventure-seekers who want to explore the many natural wonders of the area.
If you’re out for a day trip, you can head to the turquoise Lake Chala for a long walk and monkey watching. Meanwhile, the Kikuletwa hot springs are famous for tiny fish that love to clean the feet of swimmers. Those interested in local culture can also visit the Maasai tribe and Chagga villages nearby.
Moshi has plenty of delicious food to offer. Swahili dishes like nyama choma (grilled meat with roasted plantains) go well with locally brewed beer. Stalls in the market sell traditional clothing and fresh fruit, while famous coffee farms provide delicious Tanzanian Arabica coffee.
