Véritable paradis pour les amoureux de la nature et de la randonnée. Les Monts Usambara font parti d’une chaîne de montagnes qui se situe dans le nord-est de la Tanzanie, à proximité du parc national de Mkomazi et de la ville de Tanga.
The Usambara Mountains consist of two rainforest-covered mountain ranges: the Western Usambara and the Eastern Usambara. They are 110 kilometres long and reach an altitude of 2,290 metres.
The Usambara Mountains are home to more than 3,000 species of plant and 600 species of tree. Nature lovers come to these mountains to observe birds and the surrounding flora.
If you want to go hiking during your trip to Tanzania, the Usambara Mountains are a great place to stop. Along the way, you’re sure to come across many colourful villages inhabited by friendly local people.
