At the hotels in Nairobi and Moshi you are on a bed and breakfast basis. Breakfast normally consists of tea and coffee, fruit, cereal, toast, eggs, etc. There are a number of good places to eat in Moshi, offering a wide variety of local and international cuisine, including Tanzanian, Italian, Indian, Chinese and Indonesian restaurants.

There will be ample drinking water, as you will be filling up from local water sources. All the water is boiled so iodine drops or tablets are optional whilst trekking. If you do happen to use water from a stream or from hotels it may be best to purify it first. The porters will collect water each morning and evening for drinking and cooking. You must let us know well in advance if you have any special dietary requirements or allergies.
