The Udzungwa Mountains are amongst Africa's most remarkable biodiversity hotspots, and walking them is one of a variety of truly memorable experiences on your Tanzania safari vacation package.
A Tanzania safari vacation package here is well suited for excellent hiking, trekking, mountain climbing and forest walks. Other activities offered include game drives on safari, birding, cycling, canoeing and cultural / market or local interest visits.
The Southern Circuit of Tanzania is not as well known as the north and therefore is not as often visited. This is a huge benefit for those who do travel here. Udzungwa can be combined with top game viewing parks for a spectacular and uncrowded Tanzania safari.
Special camping trips can be arranged on your Tanzania safari vacation package. You trek into the rainforest and spend the night below the canopy. The campsite high up on the mountains overlooks the vast openness of the African plains from the edge of Sanje Falls, the most spectacular waterfall in southern Tanzania. Breakfast is served as the sun rises over the Kilombero Valley, followed by the opportunity for a swim in the river, before trekking down the mountains and returning to Udzungwa Forest Tented Camp.
Activities in the park and surrounding areas can be arranged with the camp guides. Catering can be put together for guests heading into the forest on an overnight hike.
