Description

Why should you visit?

Udzungwa (also known as the Eastern Arc Mountains) is the largest and most bio-diverse of a chain of a dozen large forest-swathed mountains that rise from eastern Tanzania. It is also unique within Tanzania in that its closed-canopy forest spans altitudes of 250 metres (820 feet) to above 2,000 metres (6,560 ft) without interruption.

Udzungwa is respectively famous for hikers rather than sightseers. The popular half-day ramble to Sanje Waterfall, which plunges 170 metres (550 feet) through a misty spray into the forested valley below is one of Udzungwa’s many forest trails. The more challenging two-night Mwanihana Trail leads to the high plateau, with its panoramic views over surrounding sugar plantations, before ascending to Mwanihana peak, the second-highest point in the range.

Udzungwa also attracts a number of researchers due to its 400+ bird species and rich plant bio-diversity.
