From the rainbows of sun-ripened produce in the Mbuyuni Market to the remarkable relic of the Old Railway Station, the resplendent Cathedral of Christ the King to the luscious lawns of Shanty Town, Moshi is a municipality of incredible character, where the local Chagga people live in harmony with the majesty of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Discover the magical municipality of Moshi, dancing to its own authentic beat at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. Thought to be named after the smoke that emanates from the dormant volcano, the capital of Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro region was first established as a military camp by the Germans in 1893, attaining town status in 1956, and applying to become a city in 2014. The municipality is skirted by the shimmering expanses of one of the largest sugar cane plantations in Tanzania, a rich tapestry of agricultural land, villages, and wildlife conservation areas, where exotic birds flash by in bursts of color.
Known for its dynamic and welcoming heart, Moshi will always make room for one more.
