Holidays to Moshi, Tanzania

Based in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, Moshi is a simple stopover with a beautiful scenery. The low-key town of Moshi has a few markets, shops and restaurants and is an appealing blend of African and Asian influences. 

Most of Moshi's visitors are here to climb the "Roof of Africa", Mount Kilimanjaro. Standing at nearly 6,000 metres tall, it’s Africa’s highest peak and takes about a week to climb. For those looking for a slightly less mountainous challenge - and a cheaper one at that - nearby Mount Meru is Tanzania’s second highest peak, and makes for an equally beautiful hike with a plethora of flora and fauna to explore. You may even spot a few wild zebra and buffalo.

For a little rest and relaxation after your hike, the Kikuletwa Hot Springs will soothe a tired body. The hour or so it takes to get there from central Moshi is well worth the trip - this natural, warm pool is hidden away in woodland and surrounded by twisting tree roots and leafy branches casting dappled sunlight onto the water.

Let's talk
When people think of Tanzania, they think of the Serengeti National Park, they think of David Attenborough narrating over a stalking cheetah. Tanzania simply embodies safari. You can also visit the vibrant 'safari city', known as Arusha. I bought some beautiful, one-of-a-kind, hand-made glasses here, which were crafted by people with learning disabilities. This great social enterprise is known as Shanga, and you can visit here during your stay and learn how everything is made.
