Reasons to ♥ Tanzania....


The Usambara Mountains

Roadtrippin’ with friends up to the beautiful Amani Game Reserve in the East Usambara Mountains. The undulating, lush mountain range is home to unspoiled tropical rainforests that are rare in eastern Africa. We took a forest walk (well…more of a hike) up to a view point looking out over the Western range towards Lushoto, and accompanied by a park guide we were educated about the medicinal properties and local usage of the forest flora. We drove through rolling  tea estates and spent a lazy afternoon exploring a waterfall, the water misting us as it splashed over the sheer rock face. It is a beautiful part of the country, and the perfect place when you need a break from damp and dusty Dar.
