Visit the ‘Galapagos’ of the plant kingdom! The Usambara Mountains are a relict patch of the great tropical rainforests that once spanned the breadth of Africa. The mountains are a treasure trove of botanical and zoological diversity, and great for hiking, bird-watching or spotting primates. Sunsets here turn the surroundings into an exotic palette of colors and you can see Kilimanjaro in the distance. The small town of Lushoto is great for walks and overnight excursions. With its pleasant climate, colonial buildings, and colorful farmlands on the mountain slopes, this Tanzanian gem provides a welcome break from cities and game parks!
