What To Do
Mambo Cliff Inn offers specialized guided day tours and multi-day trips throughout the area which offer a wealth of natural and historical information, cultural symbolisms, as well as places of interest to enrich one's experience of the Usambara region. We also organize taxi, mountain bikes, motorcycles (boda boda), buses and overnight stays and lodging in the Usambara Mountains.
On request, we can arrange personalised itineraries with our experienced local guides. Guests can explore a wide range of exciting excursions directly from Mambo Cliff Inn. Bird-watch for the very rare Taita Falcon nest nearby the cliffs. Hike to the ancient caves and view prehistoric footprints. Walk through Shagayu forest with its stands of great trees, waterfalls, and incredible biodiversity. Hike down to Ndungu Lake, with its tranquil setting of rice fields teeming wfith monkeys and birdlife. Safari to Mkomazi National Park, one of the newest wildlfe parks in Tanzania.
The climate is temperate (though it can be cool in the evenings) and offers a beautiful enviroment for hiking. The Usambaras are a perfect altitude conditioner and training area for a Mt. Kilimanjaro trek.
If intensive hiking is not for you, relax and enjoy top-end views and romantic sunsets directly from your room, veranda, the restaurant, or the Inn gardens. Visit Mambo village, local artisans, and the vibrant weekly market. Or get a cup at a local coffee bar. Other possible activities are mountain-biking and motorcycling, visiting village projects, paying a visit to a traditional healer, playing soccer with the local children at the field just opposite Mambo Cliff Inn, or just sitting outside at the fireplace and gazing at the blue starry sky above you.
As you can see, there is enough to do in Mambo to keep you here for at least a couple of days!
