Moshi Highlights

Coffee Farm Tour

Coffee is the biggest export from this region. Myriad plantations are dotted around the slopes of the Kilimanjaro region. For the coffee lovers, you can walk through the bush to a local coffee plantation and see the magic first hand.


Locals in the area claim that the second-hand markets in Moshi are the best by far. From fresh fruit to vibrant material, you can find all sorts in the jumble of stalls. So why not find a bargain and meet some colourful characters at the local markets in Moshi.


Tucked away in the valleys of the mountain, you can find yourself in awe of nature at the foot of roaring waterfalls.

Village Tours

Moshi is home to the Chagga and Pare tribes. Take the opportunity to discover a new culture and see how other people live. In the villages, you can chat with local farmers, poke around the Chagga museum, explore ancient caves and get a bit tipsy on the locally brewed banana beer.

Natural Hot Spring

Less than 2 hours towards Arusha you can find a hidden oasis in the bush. A natural hot spring waits for you to explore. 

Lake Chala

Two hours in the other direction is Lake Chala. On the border of Kenya, Lake Chala is a beautiful place to camp out for a night under the stars.
