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 !
