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.

Amitoz's review for another Enosa Expeditions tour
5 - Excellent
“I did Lemosho 7 day route with Enosa expeditions and it was a great experience. Communication with Noel was a breeze and everything was as promised. I was supposed to join another group but since their luggage go delayed, they could not start the climb on the scheduled date.
However, Enosa Expeditions ensured that this had no impact on my plans. I was assigned my own crew and started the climb as planned. Very professional on their part.

The guide, cook and the entire crew were a great company throughout the climb.
I recommend Enosa for anyone planning to climb kilimanjaro.”
Anonymous's 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”
Frederik's review for another Enosa Expeditions tour
5 - Excellent
“I went on a Kilimanjaro hike (7 day Lemosho) with my sister. The nature is amazing - especially the first two days. The route was also very good for aclimization - we didn't encounter any serious altitude sickness symptoms before summit-night. The trail is in great condition and is maintained very well. The mountain itself is majestic and abolutely huge! The campsites were clean and well organized.
If you enjoy the green rainforrest and aren't in a hurry to reach the summit, the Lemosho route is definately reccomendable.”
