Trekking Central

Moshi is a town with a population of approximately 150, 000 and is the best place to base yourself if preparing for a climb of Kilimanjaro.
It's in the middle of a major coffee growing area and has the wonderful advantage of the amazing view of Mt Kilimanjaro. The mountain is usually covered in a layer of clouds but early in the morning and around dusk the clouds will disappear and the imposing sight of Kilimanjaro appears.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Best base for Kilimanjaro, good food, supplies available
  • Cons:Pesky touts
  • Last visit to Moshi: Feb 2009

    turning back the clock, i could have joined a High School climb up the Kilimanjaro. Wondering whether this visit to your Moshi is a Drumbeat call ?

    Gotta love a page that's over 60% food tips even if the beverage of choice is a milk shake and not beer. ;P
