About this location

The Tanga Region

The Usambara are considerably older than Mts. Kilimanjaro and Meru. Through the mountains were thrust upwards around 25 million years ago, the rock which forms the mountains is at least 600 million years old.

The Usambaras are an island in this archipelago where plants found stability and refuge during millennia of climatic change. The Usambaras have many unique plant species, and are the source of the world-famous Usambara or African violet.The Usambaras have abundant and diverse bird life, and according to experts, is one of the best places in Africa for bird watching.

Lushoto District - long famous for its fruits and vegetables- , produces most of Tanzanian`s plums and pears, and much of the salad greens and vegetables used by Dar´s top hotels and restaurants come from Lushoto. Almost all visitors to the Usambaras return with a mental book of lovely memories; many come back wth a slew of photographs; some come away with locally made handicrafts or artwork. But one thing everyone brings back from the mountains is a basketful of fruits and vegetables. Also you can learn about local soil conservation, irrigatin projects and farming methods. So come, see and enjoy yourself!


The story of the people of Usambara, the Washambaa is exciting. They are an agricultural people who since the time of their ancestors have found the mountains more fertile and easily defended than the surrunding plains, belong linguistically and culturally to the Bantu family of peoples. Come and learn more about the different tribes of the Wazigua, Wabondei, Wataita and Wapare, the Wakilindi and Wambugu and others. Have a view into the history and daily life of the Wasambaa farmers.

Visit several development projects in the district, like soil conservation, irrigation, cross breeding, afforestation, health care, etc.

Meet with local people, building friendships and learn about and from them! Take a glimpse behind the usual touristview! We help you to get in contact and make the most out of your stay!
