10 Best Things to Do in and Around Moshi, Tanzania

Moshi, Tanzania

Moshi, Tanzania, is a small city home to over 100,000 people. It’s located in the Kilimanjaro Region, with many unique attractions you can explore while you’re there. Here are ten things you should do when visiting Moshi:

Hike up Mount Kilimanjaro

The Kilimanjaro hike is a four-day expedition that climbs to the summit of Africa’s highest point. It’s a challenging climb, but if you’re ready for it, you’ll be rewarded with incredible views and an adrenaline rush when you reach the top.

The best way to get started on this journey is with our tour company Exodussafaris.com. We offer both guided trips up Mount Kilimanjaro and other adventures in Tanzania’s northern region (which includes the Serengeti National Park).

Visit the Chagga Museum

The Chagga Museum is located in the center of Moshi and contains a collection of artifacts from the Chagga people. The museum is open to the public, but admission is free. It’s a great place to learn about their history and culture by visiting this museum.

Go to Imbabala, The Top most Part of Moshi.

Imbabala is the topmost part of Moshi and is a great place to view the city. It’s also an excellent place to see the mountains, sunsets, sunrises, and stars at night. If you have time on your hands during your stay in Moshi, then this is one activity you should do!

Go to The Twin Falls

Twin Falls is a must-see in Moshi. Located in the village of Njombe, it’s a beautiful sight and makes for an ideal photo opportunity. The twin falls are popular tourist attractions, so expect them to be crowded on weekends and holidays.

The twin falls are located about an hour from downtown Moshi on Tanzania’s western coast by road or public transport (a minibus). If you’re driving yourself, there’s plenty of parking space along both sides of the street and behind each restaurant that serves food near where we stayed at night before heading out in the early morning the next day.

Do a Safari in the Lake Manyara National Park.

If you’re looking for a safari in the Lake Manyara National Park, this is the place to go. The park covers over 12,000 square kilometers of savannah and scrubland, with excellent animal viewing opportunities and many activities available. You can stay at one of four campsites or rent a house from three private lodges within the park.

The best time to visit is between December and April when there are more animals around than during other seasons; April is also when most tourists arrive because it’s warmer and drier than other times of year (though don’t worry if you visit in winter because Tanzania has plenty to offer even then).

Visit The Ngorongoro Crater and Olduvai Gorge

The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Tanzania’s most famous natural attractions. It’s also one of the largest calderas in the world, with an area of about 1,000 football fields.

The crater was formed 7 million years ago by a supervolcano that erupted inside Africa. The resulting eruption sent ash thousands of feet into the air and blanketed much of what we now know as Kenya with thick layers of volcanic rocks called tuff (used for building houses). Today, these tuff cliffs still rise more than 2 miles above ground level, forming an impressive backdrop for your visit!

You can travel around this fantastic piece of land via four-wheel drive vehicles or on foot through paths cut through the dense forest all around it; however, if you’d like more adventure, then consider hiking up Mount Kulalu, where there are many great views over Ngorongoro Crater itself along with other sites such as Mount Meru Hill which offers panoramic views across northern Tanzania all day long thanks to its elevation at over 4000 meters above sea level.

Visit a Baraza (a Traditional Meeting Place)

A baraza is a traditional meeting place where people gather to talk, share news and make plans. They are often in the form of a circle or square with benches around them.

The word “baraza” comes from Arabic and means “council” or “assembly hall.” Nomadic tribes used Barazas before settling into villages and towns. However, they still exist today (and are still used) throughout Tanzania in locations like Kilimanjaro National Park – where you can find them at many campsites!

When you visit one, there will be food sellers nearby selling snacks such as peanuts, etc., coffee beans for making tea/coffee; water pipes for smoking tobacco, etc.; clothes washing machines if needed too! It’s also possible to buy souvenirs such as bracelets made out of shells or beads made out of shell beads that have been strung together onto strands before being woven into a string – these are called Kumulwe (pronounced Koo-moo-law) bracelets because they resemble long strands hanging down from someone’s wrists instead like necklace chains would look like if worn around their necks instead!

Participate in a Dawa Tasting Tour

Dawa, or traditional Tanzanian tea, is a drink made from the leaves of the shrub-like Bafana tree. The leaves are dried and ground into powder. It’s traditionally brewed in a small clay pot called a home that’s placed over an open fire until it cools down to room temperature. Once cooled, data can be stored in an airtight container for several weeks before drinking again; this helps keep its flavor strong while preventing oxidation (a process that causes bitterness).

Dawa is often considered one of Tanzania’s top health benefits because it contains antioxidants called flavonoids which have been shown to reduce oxidative stress caused by environmental factors like pollution and UV rays—and they also help fight cancer cells!

You can buy fresh Dawa at many stores around town—but if you want something extra special that tastes even better than storebought versions, then visit Moshi’s Bwana Mkuu restaurant for its homemade version made with organic ingredients grown locally on his farm near Mount Kilimanjaro.

See the Pare Mountains

The Pare Mountains are an excellent choice if you’re looking for a place to go hiking and see wildlife. The mountains are home to many animals, including big cats like leopards and cheetahs. You can also find elephants here!

Hiking through these majestic peaks is something you should try at least once in your lifetime!

If camping is what tickles your fancy, then there are plenty of campsites throughout this area that caters specifically to backpackers on their travels through Tanzania.

Visit The Local Markets Downtown.

The local markets are an essential part of the Tanzanian culture and can be a great place to get a feel for what life is like in Moshi. You’ll see people selling goods, from clothes to spices, foodstuffs, and more. These markets open every day, even on holidays!


This is just a tiny sample of what Moshi has to offer. You can find more information online if you want more details on each attraction.
