Moshi is a small town on the lap of the Mt.Kilimanjaro and the gateway to the Kilimanjaro national park.After the strenuous hike to Mt. Kilimanjaro everyone look for a perfect relaxing destination and the moshi town has it all.
KIKULETWA HOT SPRING(MAJI MOTO)
Crystal clear flowing water body surrounded by big trees in the middle of a deserted land like an oasis.Though it named hot spring but the water is cold enough to relief you from the scorching sun of tanzania.Water has medium current and it flows underground.For adrenalin junkies,the water is deep enough to jump from the surrounding trees.Also there are a barbecue shop.Chilled beer with hot barbecue goat and french fries make your day trip a perfect one.Don’t book through agency.It’ll cost you almost 3 times.Just hire a random auto/car that cost around 25-30$.The entry fee is 10,000 african shilling/person.If you don’t know how to swim,not to worry,rent a life jacket or air tube.
Very beautiful crater lake surrounded by the lush green forest.Half of the lake within Tanzania and the other half in kenya.It takes only 2 hrs from moshi by car.The lake is within a private property.There are also cottages to stay beside lake.You can also go for a day tour,just go there,have some chilled beer at view-point restaurant,do kayaking and simply relax.
If you have extra days in hand then safari is the next best idea.We did a one day safari to NGORONGORO CRATER.But a 3-4 days safari is recommended.
The journey was too long and tiresome from moshi,around 10 hrs return journey.But the little time we spent there was full of happy memories.We saw almost every wildlife like lion,zebra,wild beast,bison,elephant,deer,hippopotamus,wild boar,hyena,ostrich and many types of birds.
