Lushoto which is in the Usambara mountains is four hours drive on tarmac roads from Tanzania’s business and financial capital Dar es salaam, three hours from the Kilimanjaro International airport and two hour’s drive from Tanga.
The Usumbara Mountains are a mountain range in North-East Tanzania, approximately 70 miles (110 km) long and ranging from 20 to 40 miles (30-60 km) in width. Mountains in the range rise as high as 8,000 ft (2,440 m). The viewpoints on the southern and western sides of Usumbara are well known for the spectacular views of Mkomazi and Handeni plains. Mt. Kilimanjaro can be seen on the horizon and at the end of the day the sunset turns areas into tremendous pallets of unforgettable colors.
The Usumbaras are fairly unique in that, being in East Africa, their unspoiled regions are covered in the tropical forest which today remains mainly in the west of the continent. Considered tremendously significant ecologically
