Moshi town - the Mo-town

Moshi is a small, lively town settled on the slopes of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro in northern Tanzania.

The pleasant town of Moshi is the trekking base for Mount Kilimanjaro – Africa’s tallest mountain. This place is also the center of coffee production in Tanzania.

Moreover, it’s also close to popular sites, such as the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tarangire National park, Arusha National Park, and Lake Manyara National Park.
