We did the 3 day trek from Lushoto to Mtae and were extremely happy with our choice to come to this region of Tansania. It is not as busy ( yet ), and the landscape is just gorgeous for the most part. A lot of people skip coming here because Sansibar and Arusha seem to be the big hot spots... 更多
We did 3-days Lushoto to Mtae trek and it was just amazing. We decided to use Friends of Usambara and they took great care of us from the very beginning. Our guide, Boniface, collected us from the bus station and was very helpful and flexible during our stay. The trekking itself was great: we saw plenty of chameleons, some monkeys,... 更多
Spent a few days in the Usambara mountains and was not disappointed, very relaxing trek through mountains with some great views overlooking valley below. It is about 6 hours drive from Dar Salem so get a comfortable trip to location, if going through Tanzania it's great to experience the mountain region as well. Lots of option for accommodation and people... 更多

Hi! I did with my four days hike in the mountains last week, my trip was well organized and impressive in every part of it. Mambo and Mtae sounded common then I rather looked for any of the less popular trips and so Yassini in the office organized a Masai tour downhill the mountains. I spent two nights in a... 更多
Although we didn’t go on a trip with friends of Usambara, the staff was very helpful without wanting to get paid. They helped us with organizing our journey from Lushoto to Tanga, calling the bus company in Tanga, organizing a shuttle down to Mombo/Liverpool Hotel, etc.. That was very convenient.
