The Kilimanjaro region has attracted thousands of tourists from all over the world. Needless to say, all credit goes to the beautiful Mt. Kilimanjaro. It has been, for many years, a part of many people’s bucket list. But why not, it is a huge achievement to get to Uhuru Peak! If you plan to climb Mount Kilimanjaro with Viva Africa Tours, you will probably stay in Moshi, a little town located not too far away from the foot of the mountain.
There are numerous ways you can relax and unwind after you are back from the mountain climb. Tanzania is well known for its culture and great street food. Moshi may be a small town but there are plenty of local things you can enjoy during your stay there.
Moshi is popular for its ‘mishkaki’ and ‘kheema chapati’ at the very famous Naseeb restaurant. People from all over Tanzania know of this local joint. Why do we like it? Because it’s authentic and delicious! Mishkaki is basically marinated pieces of roasted beef on a stick. Kheema chapati is a mixture of egg and minced meat sandwiched between a ‘roti’. Best part is, these places are super cheap! You can get a satisfying meal for less than $5!
Let’s not forget the sugarcane juice at Milan’s Café. Situated just close by to the double road, Milans Café is the only place you will find sugar cane juice. And just a few meters away you can buy local street food – fried cassava with Kachumbari (tomatoes and onions).
Chemka Hot Springs
What could be better than the wonders of nature itself? As the name suggests, Chemka is a beautiful quiet spot where you can relax and swim in clear, blue waters of the hot springs. Located not too far away from the town center, you are sure to have a relaxing time here.
TPC Golf Club
TPC Golf Club is located just 30 minutes away from Moshi town, amidst a vast sugar plantation and sugar factory. Here you can enjoy first-class continental food from a large variety on the menu. The Pizzas here are very famous and you will not go wrong there! It is a paradise for those who love golf. For those who prefer to take it easy, there is a nice small pool here as well. Many choose to stay at the club houses so that they have more time to spend here. But it all depends on your budget.
