Early migration patterns of the Niger–Congo Bantu's led the Chagga to settle in the North Pare Mountains. This is the Home of the ancestral chagga . A large population growth in the eleventh or twelve century led to a number of people to begin looking for a new land to settle which is today's Moshi at the slopes of Mt.Kilimanjaro.
