UDZUNGWA MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK

The Udzungwa Mountains national park is a slice of the Udzungwa Arc Mountains in short the Udzungwa is part of a broken chain of mountains called the Eastern Arc Mountains that lie close to the coast of East Africa from southern Kenya to southern Tanzania, the Usambaras, the Pares and the Ulugurus are some of this chain.

Udzungwa National Park was formally national forest reserve up to 1992 when became a national Park, it covers an area of 1990 sq.km (770 sq miles) Lying between 300 and 2800 m above Sea level. The plateau is a natural penthouse with view of grassland and mountain forest stretching over 100 Km of Sanjie River waterfall, which plunges at 170 Meters.

The major attraction of the park is its bio-diversity and unique rainforest, where many rare plants, not found anywhere else in the world, have been identified, from a tiny Africa no let to 30 meter high trees.

The park is located just a 5 hours drive from Dar-es-salaam 350 Km (215 miles) and Southwest of Mikumi is 100 Km (about 40 miles). Best time to visit is the dry season is June - October but it is accessible year round although slippery in the wet.
