Walking is possible in different levels of difficulty but
every path leads to another amazing location which makes the
journey worth your while. The beautiful Lushoto waterfall is
any easy track and not too far away from the Lodge. If you
take the path to the Forest Reserve you can do some bird
watching and observe the most exotic birds this region has
to offer such as the Trumpeter Hornbill which resides in the
forest. If you are looking for a more challenging walking
track, you can hike up the trail that leads up to the
highest mountain peak in Usambara. The view point is truly
spectacular. To top off this amazing view you can also see
the Colobus monkeys that reside on Usambara Mountains.
Hiking is another way to
explore the hidden
usambara mountains. Treks of different length are possible.
You can walk to our neighbouring town of
Lushoto or rent a
car from the lodge and visit the town’s market; where you
will not only find beautiful designed sculptors, artwork and
an array of souvenirs but other basic goods you may also
need. There is also Irente View Point which is not too far
by car. The scenery is simply stunning with an estimated
800m vertical drop that overlooks the plains below and
rugged cliffs that compliment this feature. Other
awe-inspiring locations are Stone of God, Sky-Line, Mlalo,
Bumbuli or the amazing
Mambo and Mtai which are also short car rides.
We supply you with generous lunch boxes for your day
exploration and we can also direct you on how and where to
get a guide if you require one.
