  • What to do in Moshi for three days? I am staying at the Honey Badger Hotel.

    by roxieadavis Online Now Jan 10, 2014 at 5:29 AM

    I will be in Moshi for three extra days while my husband and daughter walk up Kilimanjaro.
    Their trek is 8 days and my Safari is 5. I would like to explore Moshi without spending much
    money or no money because I am already paying alot for the Safari. Do you have any suggestions?

  • Maps and Local Bus routes

    by Teri_0033 Online Now Dec 19, 2013 at 10:52 PM

    Do you have any information such as local maps or bus routes that could come in handy for my week spent in Moshi before the big climb? I would love to visit many of the places I have read about such as the forests of monkeys and hot springs and falls, has anyone got any advice for doing this without a guided tour etc. I would love some more info!!
    many thanks and a great festive season to you all

  • Arusha to Moshi after dark?

    by karikky4e Online Now Dec 17, 2012 at 7:22 AM

    We will travel from Nairobi to Arusha with the bus that starts at 14:00 o'clock, and will arrive around 18:30 - 19:00. Because our hotel is in Moshi, is there any possible way to go to Moshi the same day? Daladalas, taxi or something else?
    Thank you in advance.

  • Moshi!

    by chrissy8411 Online Now Jul 8, 2011 at 3:52 PM

    I will be traveling to Tanzania in about a month. My trip to there will be short because I will be volunteering at an orphanage in Moshi for 2 weeks and only have the weekends to travel around. Only trips that I can take are 2 days and there are a lot of tours/parks out there, can anybody tell me what are some places that are going to be good for such a short time? Thanks!

  • Impala Hotel in Moshi

    by janrhian Online Now Feb 6, 2008 at 5:34 PM

    Does this hotel (as distinct from the Impala in Arusha) still exist. Or has it changed its name? I can't find it listed anywhere and there is no website. My daughter visited it last year and we thought we'd go back.

  • Kilimanjaro Training

    by iwishiwasinpakistan Online Now Nov 10, 2006 at 6:39 PM

    I live in Colorado Springs, CO at 7,000 feet above sea level. I'm located at the base of Pike's Peak, which is 14,000 feet above sea level. Would climbing Pike's Peak a few times be sufficient training for Kilimanjaro?

    I'm thinking about climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro this year. Here's what I need to know: 1) Is Moshi the closest town to Kili? 2) How far is Moshi from KIA? 3) Can a strong 13 year old boy climb Kili? Im thinking about taking my son.

  • Is Maestro accepted in East Africa?

    by Sally333 Online Now Sep 28, 2005 at 4:39 AM

    Do the ATMs in Moshi accept Maestro cards? Or does it have to be Visa? Is Maestro generally accepted in East / South Africa these days or is Visa a better option?

    Many thanks for any help.
