Day Trips from Moshi
Lake Chala Day Trip
Only an hours drive from Moshi on the border between Tanzania and Kenya sits a wondrous crater lake. This volcanic area is perfect for camping, swimming and exploration.
A camp ground with several camping sites is available and includes a bar, restaurant, hot showers and barbeque grills.
Chagga Tribe Day Trip
A tour through a Chagga village will take you through a coffee plantation and banana beer making, both of which are made entirely by hand. You may also visit a blacksmith to see how tools are built using traditional methods and take a look at Chagga houses.
A walk through the village must not go without stepping inside a cave, which were made during the time of tribal wars with the Maasai and used by the Chagga people and their livestock for hiding.
Kikuletwa Hotsprings Day Trip
Kikuletwa Hot springs gets its name from the water that bubbles in underground caves. Surrounded by fig trees, this area is a hidden gem in the midst of a semi arid landscape.
Here you may find a diversity of colourful birds amongst an abundance of plant life and neighbouring indigenous tribes. There is also an option to camp overnight and hike.
Kinukamori Waterfall Day Trip
Kinukamori is located in Chagga Land in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. Its crystal clear water originates in the natural springs of volcanic rocks on Kilimanjaro.
You will be able to visit Kinukamori on top and bottom. This picturesque spot is great for swimming or just relaxing and enjoying the refreshing breeze from the waterfall.
Starting at 8.30 am a thirty minute drive from Moshi will take us to Marangu Village, where we will begin our short 20 minute hike to Kinukamori Waterfall.
Along the way you will pass through beautiful forest past tall Eucalyptus trees among many others. At Kinukamori we will be serving a picnic lunch before making our way back to Moshi.
