The Usambara Mountains are a mountain range in North-East Tanzania, approximately 70 miles (110 km) long and ranging from 20 to 40 miles (64 km) in width. Mountains in the range rise as high as 8,000 ft (2,440 m). They are part of the Eastern Arc Mountains, which stretch from Kenya through Tanzania, and are one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots.

The range is accessible from the towns of Lushoto in the West, and Amani in the East. The Usambaras are commonly split into two sub-ranges, the West Usambara and the East Usambara. The East Usambara is closer to the coast, receives more rainfall, and is significantly smaller than West Usambara.

The Usambaras are fairly unique in that, being in East Africa, their unspoiled regions are covered in tropical forest, which today remains mainly in the West of the continent. The mountain range was formed nearly two billion years ago.

Review for another Enosa Expeditions tour
“If someone will ask me about Africa,i will tell him/her that Africa is a beautiful place.
I was in Tanzania last week,and i visited several wonderful places including Mount Kilimanjaro,Serengeti,Ngorongoro and Manyara.
Company which organised my tour was Enosa Expeditions which is based in Moshi Tanzania. I did not want to use Chinese or other international companies because some of my friends advised me to use local companies due to the reasons that they have a tendecy of protecting their clients and once you get any problems it will be simple to solve it.
I climb Mount Kilimanjaro through Lemosho route for 7 days and our guides made sure that we reach the Summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
We also went to Serengeti,Ngorongoro and Manyara for 4 days;it was very nice to see elephants,Lions and Leopards.
Enosa Expeditions offered me accomodation in a very nice hotel called Keys hotel. And they gave me an offer of visiting Lake Challa which is a very nice place for people who likes to play with water. I did not pay for that.
I would like to encourage my fellow friends to visit Tanzania a very beautiful and peaceful place”

Peter's review for another Enosa Expeditions tour
“The communication and planning with owner Noel leading up to the tour was fantastic. The tour with guide Anton and his team was perfect and they really worked hard at ensuring a comfortable safe journey to the summit and back. The food was much better than I anticipated, and they always made sure that you have plenty of water on hand. The price of this tour was cheaper than average but it definitely did not lack in quality, so overall it was fantastic value.”

Travis' review for another Enosa Expeditions tour
“I had a wonderful time hiking Kilimanjaro with Enosa Expeditions! I did the
7 day Lemosho hike. Enosa provided one (fluent English) tour guide, one
cook, and five porters. I was the only tourist on this trek. One of the
porters also spoke some English, and he served all my meals everyday.
Speaking of meals, I never dreamed that I would eat so well on this trek!
Everyday breakfast and dinner were huge multi-course meals, including a
variety of food groups, and all having genuinely great flavors. There did
seem to be a lot of heavy-carb meals to provide and maintain energy through
the hike.

Everyday, upon arrival to the camp site, my tent was already prepared with
my large trekking bag, sleeping bag, and dining essentials laid out neatly,
and every morning they would pack it all up for me and carry it all to the
next camp site. While hiking, there were many occasions that I needed either
some guidance about how to maneuver a particular difficult area or simply
needed a stabilizing hand, and James, my guide, was always there and always
very helpful.

I always felt well take care of, I always felt safe, and I always felt that
Enosa had my best interests in mind. Here are two examples to illustrate
this: 1) As someone else mentioned, an extra winter hat was provided by
Enosa before we started the trek, but I found I didn't need it and never
used it on the trek, so they didn't charge me for the hat, and 2) the
morning that I left Kilimanjaro, Noel, Enosa's primary business contact,
arrived exactly on time and drove me the hour from Moshi to the JRO airport
in Arusha. That trip cost me $50 USD when I arrived. I had not planned for
this; Noel simply offered, and I graciously accepted.

Thanks again, Noel! Thanks again, James and everyone else! I never could've
done this without you, and I'll remember this wonderful experience for the rest of my life!”
