The Views

MamboViewPoint is situated on the edge of the Usambara mountains at an altitude of 1900 meters. We have a bright stunning view to all sides over the african planes and mountains. Even the Kilimajaro can be seen during clear weather.

The natural forest

Probably you will not expect such a dense
d tropical forest. Since the forest is remote it is untouched, has a wide biodiversity and offers a very nice place for short or long walks.

Historical sites

The Usambara mountains are estimated to be at least 100 million years old and the rocks forming them may be as much as 600 million years old

The habitation of the Us
ambara´s goes back to at least 1,5 million years. Traces which are unique in world history were found near Mambo and still can be
seen.

Ricefields and the lake


The Ndungu lake, named after the small village next to it is an artificial lake made by the Germans. Just before they managed to make electricity they were kicked out after WW I. Since then the lake is used for irrigation which shows itself to us like a big green spot from the rice fields. You will see many birds who come to drink there. A totaly non-African scenery.

The Usambara mountains


With their wide vistas, cool climate, winding paths and picturesque villages, the Usambara's are one of Tanzanian's
highlights.
The Usambara's are a part of the ancient Eastern Arc chain which mountains stretch in a broken crescent from the Taita hills in southern Kenya down to Morogoro and the southern highlands.
 

Usambaras
Birds
 
In the Usambara mountains and around MamboViewPoint you will find many birds. Among them rare species which even are not in the books. You will find them in our garden, in the forest and near the lake.
