There isn’t much to see in Moshi… However, there are thousands of things to see and do. So, rather of making it the beginning point of your safari or climb, extend your stay a few days before or after. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
A list of day outings and short tours in and around Moshi is provided below. They can be booked alone or in combination with any other package or bespoke tour. Let us know what you’re looking for, and we’ll send you a quote!

We’ll have to disappoint you if you ask for a list of fantastic things to visit in Moshi town. There are no architectural gems or immaculately kept parks. For a formal supper, there are no shopping centers or fashionable eateries. There is, nevertheless, a feeling. We can’t quite put our finger on it, but there’s a laid-back vibe. Streets thronged with people, bustling marketplaces, and pubs blasting reggae music all day. Just 30 minutes out of town, you’ll find coffee plantations, waterfalls, and little local communities. Surprising encounters and vistas out of a dream when traveling through rocky roads. The aroma of a home-cooked supper, and your local guide’s delight as he tells you about his tribe’s culture.
