Where Do I Stay In Mosh?

Where Do I Stay In Mosh? The Top 7 Best Hotels : Focus East Africa Tours has observed an increasing trend of trekkers making direct accommodation reservations in Moshi. There are frequently some fantastic offers available on numerous hotel booking websites. As a result, we only offer hotel stays in Moshi as optional add-ons, rather than including them in our itineraries by default. We believe that this offers our clients the greatest flexibility in terms of lodging choices, both before and after their climb of Mount Kilimanjaro.

That being said, if you would like Focus East Africa Tours to make hotel reservations on your behalf, we have partnerships with a number of Moshi hotels. These are contract rates, typically less expensive than what these hotels would charge directly to guests.

Seasonally, the neighboring Savannah bush is teeming with Grants and Thompson Gazelles, as well as enormous herds of elephant, eland, zebra, and wildebeest. This is not a national park; rather, it is an ancient tribal nation where Maasai cattle and goats live in harmony with Africa’s wildlife. The wild savannah in front of the camp fades into the Kilimanjaro slopes, rising high into Africa’s azure skies. When the clouds are clear, details of the glaciers can be seen on a moonlit night. Arrival points include Kilimanjaro International Airport (3 hours drive), West Kilimanjaro Airstrip (45 minutes drive).

Accommodation: Hemingway-style, five spacious and comfortable East African tents with en suite bathrooms that provide running water, an open-air shower, and a flushing toilet are arranged on a hilltop with breathtaking views in every direction. The roomy guest tents, which may accommodate one, two, or three people each, have a dressing area, a hanging cabinet in the Hemingway style, bedside tray tables, and a lockable trunk for personal items that help to evoke the ambience of a 1920s safari. Every tent has a private veranda with chairs for safari and inspiring views. Shu’mata’s fashion incorporates vibrant Maasai hues, natural materials from Tanzania, and elements of the previous millennia.

Facilities and Services: Everyone sits down at a big table to enjoy delicious meals. The largest beasts in Africa can be seen peacefully coexisting with the Maasai and their cattle, either on foot with Maasai warriors or in game-drive cars.

  1. Ndarakwai Ranch

Location: Located on the 11,000-acre Ndarakwai Ranch in West Kilimanjaro, Ndarakwai Camp offers views of both Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru while being tucked away in a verdant grove of tall fig trees and yellow-barked acacias that border the seasonal Ngare Nairobi River.

 The privately held ranch is an example of self-sustaining conservation, protecting a range of habitats that support over 350 different kinds of birds and over 65 different mammal species. It is also a part of the ecosystem of the Amboseli/Ngasurai basin and contributes to the preservation of significant seasonal elephant routes.

Accommodations: The camp features twelve roomy tents with net windows, a thatched roof, and en suite bathrooms with safari-style showers. The tents are constructed from locally sourced materials.

Guests can congregate for food and sundowners over an outdoor campfire or one of the two internal fires in the evening. Additional activities include guided walks that last one or two hours and focus on either game viewing or bird watching; day and night game drives; trips to nearby Maasai villages where you can purchase genuine beaded jewelry; visits to the tree house where you can watch games at the waterhole; and, with advance planning, half- or full-day horseback rides.
