Just stumbled across Bristol Cottages Kilimanjaro in Moshi, base for climbing the Tanzanian mountain. The hotel’s 20 rooms are made up of eight cottages on the ground floor, eight standard rooms on the first floor and four large suites on the second floor. An eco hotel in plaseant grounds, it is signed up to Pack for a Purpose, in which travellers are asked to make a few kilos of space in their suitcase to take supplies for local schools and clinics. A nearby orphanage welcomes sports shoes, black flat school shoes, trousers, shirts and socks. Sizes of shoes range between 5 and 10. They also need toothpaste, soaps, toothbrushes and towels.
