    Encounter with an affected family
    2 more images

    The half-day tour of the local NGO KIWAKUKKI gives a realistic insight into the social reality of the country: you will be learning about the situation of HIV/AIDS in the Kilimanjaro region and the impacts of the disease on the community and families. Accompanied by a social worker of KIWAKUKKI, you are going to encounter affected families personally, may ask them questions, speak to them and thus learn about the disease not only theoratically. The fee of 10 USD will be used completely to finance the outreach programme of KIWAKUKKI which supports affected families.

    A special tour besides usual tourist attractions such as climbing Kilimanjaro or Serengeti, since visitors will better understand the social reality of the country and its people due to personally having an insight. Furthermore, visitors will leave with a positive impact since the tour fee is totally used for the support of affected families.

    The back yard of the Masai
    4 more images

    This was an excellent 4 day trek, arranged for us by Tanganyika Travels Ltd. The first day we were driven from our hotel to the Ngorongoro Crater, a long journey of about 4 hours over bumpy roads. We arrived at the Ngorongoro National Park and descended into the crater to spot Big Game. Our guide was very thorough and made sure we missed nothing! I have included my wildlife pics in the travelogues below. We camped in the back yard of the Masai, who helped us pitch tents, mend cars, carry our stuff with the help of their donkeys, guided us on walks and joined us in the evenings around a roaring campfire. Some Masai children were fascinated by my camera and took photos of each other...they're among my favourite shots of the whole holiday (most of the time you would be charged money for taking photos of people, so this was a real bonus for me!) We walked for 3 days, and on the final night there was a chance to climb a live volcano...Ol Donyo Lengai. Unfortunately the journey to the top was halted by Alex being sick within half an hour of the top, but still...

    market with friendly faces

    Just arrived from Arusha, after checking in at Leopard's, a relaxed walk in Moshi main streets.
    The little sunny city is full of colors and life. People just walking by, relaxed and moving!

    There are plenty of fruits and vegetables, all kind of shops selling every imaginable item, even those that you may think that do not exist anymore.

    definitelly a must, walking around in moshi, Kilimanjaro base....

  • Kilimanjaro, unbelievable sights.

    Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance

    I had been in Moshi for several days and as it had been quite mild weather, i hadnt seen it as it was covered in cloud. When the cloud lifted the sight was incredible. I didnt realise just how huge it was !

  • Jumping off of Moonjo Falls

    by drcondon Written Feb 14, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Took a day out with friends to walk to Moonjo from Marangu and then have a little swim. Beautiful scenery, absolutely amazing walk, tropical lush greenery and vegetation.
    When we got off the bus at Moonjo, we were met by loads of guides. They are invaluable. On the way to the Falls, our guide took us to his home and gave us fresh bananas and oranges.
    The Falls were beautiful and the water was clean but very cold. Probably one of the best times in my life!

    How so many different religions coexist

    by jackfruit Written Jan 30, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the main thoroughfare, one can see Christian churches, Hindu temples and Muslim mosques all right next to each other. I also saw a Sikh mandir as we were driving around town.

    It was wonderful to watch all these major religions coexist so harmoniously.

    Located in central Moshi, the post office is a handy for posting off any last minute post cards before your trip up Kili or as you are leaving from said climb.

    Go for a walk

    Moshi's middle of town is rather small so it's easy to go for a gentle walk. Be prepared for locals to try and sell you carvings or paintings.

    Boma Bantu House

    This is a Bantu house but isnt really authentic. International School hosts sports on the fields, go along and join in if you are around
