This great forest is yet to reveal all its treasures, waiting for further scientific exploration. This link in the chain of East Africa’s eastern arc mountains, is perfect for hiking and climbing. It has trails through the rainforest and along the escarpment up to the plateau providing wonderful views of sugar plantations. The centrepiece is the Sanje River which plunges 170 meters from the forest to the valley below in a spray of mist.Tanzania Safari
