Usambara Mountains Tanzania 341
This little known mountain range is one of the gems of Tanzania. Located northwest of Dar es Salaam, the Usambara Mountains are part of an ancient 25 million year old necklace of mountains called the Eastern Arc.
The Usambaras offer incredible natural biodiversity, especially bird-life and great walking culminating in breath-taking viewpoints. Some of the tops rise to well over 2400m.
You will be based in the Western Usambaras, which is a densely populated region of Tanzania due to the cooler climate - good for arable farming. It is a perfect place to get to know some of the local people and try some of the locally run Cultural Tourism Programmes.
