I'll be volunteering/working in Moshi for a month in May and I'd like to do some side trips on the weekends. I'll already be spending 2 weeks apart from this month climbing Mt Kilimanjaro as well as doing safaris in Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Manyara, so ideally I'd like something a bit different from these usual activities!
I can leave on Fridays and have to be back on Sunday evenings or Monday mornings, so these have to be short 2d1n or 3d2n trips. I like trekking and meeting local people and spending time with villages so I was thinking of going to the Pare Mountains or checking out some of the cultural activities around Arusha.
Any advice on these two ideas? Is it possible to squeeze them into weekends? And also, any other ideas on interesting/off-the-beaten-path side trips?
Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks a lot :D
