MalariaMoshi is situated at an elevation where the malaria parasite cannot survive, so malaria is not a concern in this area. However, depending on where you decide to travel after visiting Moshi, you may pass through malarial areas and should therefore follow your doctor's advice regarding medication.
PlantsMoshi plant life ranges from woodlands to forest, with some savanna grassland areas as well as mountainous areas near the base of Mount Kilimanjaro.
•Moshi is a relatively safe and secure area for travel
•Wildlife is mostly unfenced in the reserves nearby, so take basic precautions and do not leave your vehicle on game drives
•Drive slowly and carefully, especially in high density game areas
•Do not ever attempt to touch or feed any wildlife you see, not only is this dangerous but it also interferes with animals

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
