Moshi

By ~ Lindo Travel


Moshi

Nested at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, Moshi is the coffee- producing center of the country. All around the town, and on the slopes of Kilimanjaro, vast plantations of coffee blanket the area. Coffee is a mainstay of life in Moshi, and the seasonal coffee auctions, where international buyers bid for wholesale coffee, is an event not to be missed if you are in town.

Sugar plantations are also of central importance to the region’s economy, and can be seen outside the town. Cultural tourism programs can arrange short hikes and day trips to the tribe and villages, and also tours of nearby coffee farms. But the main reason visitors come to Moshi is to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the mountain whose thick clouds and snow-capped peak tower over the agricultural town.

Climbing Expeditions depart for Kilimanjaro National Park early in the morning, before the clouds that cluster daily around the mountain top have risen, and when the air is fresh and cool. Whether you are in Moshi to scale to the top of Africa or learn more about coffee growing and production, Moshi is a quiet haven of tranquil peace, its sedate street offering a warm welcome in a beautiful setting.
