About Us


As the only fully African-owned and operated lodge in the Northern Usambaras, Mambo Cliff Inn offers an exceptional base from which one can explore the deep rainforests, spectacular mountains, abundant bird life and vibrancy of the local village culture.


Mambo Cliff Inn offers friendly hospitality at its finest, no matter if you are traveling for business or pleasure. We provide travellers with affordable accommodation, personalized service, and local knowledge on the region's culture and attractions.


Accommodations range from secluded private cottages to tent sites, allowing the discerning traveller to choose their African experience that fits their budget. Private campsites are also available for overlanders and trekkers exploring the area. All rooms have a fantastic view over the African plains and, on a clear day, Mount Kilimanjaro is visible.


Our restaurant with open kitchen serves delicious local and western-fare food, catering to both vegetarian and non-vegetarian preferences. The fresh food served is organically-grown in the village, supporting farmers and stimulating the small, local economy. On request, we can organize picnic lunches, moonlight dinners and Sambaa storytelling, drumming, dancing and singing.
