Scenic walks through tropical forests, abounding with bird life and various species of monkeys frolicking in the trees. Aided by our friendly guides arranged by us through the Friends of the Usambaras. The walks can range between 3 hours and up to 5 days. Please contact us for a detailed list of hiking options.


The spectacular viewpoints, which look into the Masaii steps, sheer drops below, to the main Arusha – Dar-Es-Salaam highway. Paragliding and Hang gliding is popular at these spots, however, to do so, you need your own equipment. One of the best viewpoints is known in Kiswahili as “Jiwe La Mungu” meaning “The Stone of God”.


Take a 20km drive to Bumbuli through tea plantations where you can sample the local brew.


A half days trip to the Kifungilo waterfalls set in a jungle environment, and if you’re lucky you might catch a glimpse of either Tarzan or Jane.


Our guides can take you to see some hand pottery, visit a witch doctor or even to a small household to sample genuine local Tanzanian dishes of ugali, mchicha and a (potent) cane sugar brew.


Thursdays and Sundays are the market days in Lushoto for local colour, be prepared for a noisy atmosphere and to barter for your wares.


A quick visit to Gendos for a bite to eat and a gossip never goes astray.
