AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN UDZUNGWA WITH AFRICANMECCA

Hiking, camping, biking and canoeing are not only exciting, but also enlightening actively and intriguing activities for your AfricanMecca trip to Udzungwa Mountains National Park. Hiking trails wander through much of the national park, and the choices range from short treks to much longer, more challenging treks. The Sanje Waterfalls Trail is definitely something you should include in your Tanzania hiking tour itinerary. The trail takes you to the highest waterfall in all of the Tanzanian parks. The water cascades down a rock cliff for 550 feet, creating a mist that captures the sun and creates a kaleidoscope of colors before reaching a pool of water that flows into the forested valley. The Hidden Valleys Trail is a one-day hike that takes about six or seven hours to follow an enchanting path through moss covered trees while ascending more than 4200 feet – perfect way to practice for your Kilimanjaro trek.

The most challenging trail in the park is the Mwanihana Trail. This two-day hike takes you to a high plateau with vast views of sugar plantations before you ascend to Mwanihana Peak, the second highest peak in the mountain range. If you prefer to wander a more leisurely path, you may choose to track and observe some of the park’s primates – habituated mangabeys. If you are interested in spotting these animals, you should plan to spend two days within the park as they frequently move. Adventure seekers find many opportunities to get their hearts racing, such as rock climbing, waterfall abseiling, canoeing on the Msolwa River or Kilombero River and much more.

For the ultimate immersion experience, AfricanMecca recommends spending the night under the forest canopy with the sights and sounds of the rainforest surrounding you every moment. A cultural tour of Tanzania allows you to learn about the tribal peoples who dwell near the national park, and you may choose to walk or cycle to a local rubber plantation, village of Mangula or town of Ifakara. Mangula is located at the base of the Udzungwa Mountains and offers you shops, rice mills, markets and many other cultural attractions. On the edges of town, though, the atmosphere is much more relaxed with children playing and villagers carrying out their daily chores. In this part of the village, you truly experience rural life on the edge of a Tanzanian rainforest. The rural town of Ifakara also offers markets in a rustic setting of wooden buildings divided by roads filled with oxen pulling carts, automobiles and bicycles – a splendid contrast of East African traditions and modern conveniences. When you visit the township, you should seek out the Ifakara Women Weavers Association to watch the village women plait beautiful textiles on looms, and you may even purchase kitenge, or colored cloth, to take home with you. Another destination in Ifakara is the Kilombero River where a ferry is used to cross to the other side.

EAST AFRICA SAFARI BOOKING TRIP IDEA FOR UDZUNGWA IN SOUTHERN TANZANIA

When visiting Udzungwa Mountains National Park, we recommend combining it with offbeat parks in Southern and Western Tanzania such as Nyerere (Selous), Ruaha or Katavi ending with a chimpanzee trekking safari at Gombe or Mahale.

You may optionally extend out to Northern Tanzania safari parks such as Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti (wildebeest migration). End your trip with a Swahili cultural tour and beach holiday in Zanzibar.
