Udzungwa Mountains, Kilombero

Udzungwa Mountains, Kilombero

The main area for visiting the Udzungwa mountains National Park is on the south east side in the Kilombero valley - the most accessible.

This is the part of Udzungwa you'll probably want to visit most, with its spectacular waterfalls, and abundant monkeys..

The main hikes of Sanje waterfalls, Njokamoni, Hidden Valleys, and Mwanihana are on this side along with a host of other activities arranged by Udzungwa Forest Tented Camp - Hondo Hondo.

There are no lodges or roads in the park, and the mountains rise steeply out of the flood plain. The road runs along the edge of the hills and all trails start and end on the road, giving easy access. The park headquarters is also on this side.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our experience, and we feel that the service you offered was well worth the money we paid. Salim was wonderful. Very interesting to talk to us, and an excellent driver.

  • All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.
