Situated in the North Eastern part of Tanzania between Mount Kilimanjaro and the Indian Ocean Region of Tanga.

It has been dubbed the "Galapagos" of the plant world.

This incredibly beautiful and lush area is a welcome retreat from Tanzania's Game Parks and cities. The mountain region is ideal for hiking as well as some spectacular driving.

The viewpoints on the Southern and Western side of the Usambara are well known for the spectacular views of the plains of Mkomazi and Handeni.

Kilimanjaro can be seen on the horizon and at the end of the day the sunset turns the area into a tremendous pallet of unforgettable colors.

Because of its pleasant climate, the mountains were favored by Germans and English during colonial times, as is evidenced by the numerous historic buidings from the past.

The climate of the East Usambaras differs from much of the rest of Tanzania.

Rain can and does fall at any time of the year although there is a seasonal pattern.
