Reviewed February 5, 2013

We were 5 students, coming from Tanga to see the Usambara mountains. The location is beautiful with a realy great view. The staff contacted a local guide to hike uo the mountains with us. We realy recommend this place, the nature is stunning! And the food here is great, with homemade bread, cottage cheese and the best jam ever! If you are in Tanzania, this is the place to visit !

Dear Norwegian group,

We are pleased you that you enjoyed your stay with us at Irente Biodiversity Reserve. Welcome back again but avoid the very rainly season. It might be very muddy on the roads and on the path to the Magamba/Shume forest. Greetings from Anette Murless
