You are planning a trip to Tanzania and are choosing for the classic tour, starting with the big parks like Serengeti and Morogoro crater around Arusha and ending with the beach along the coast with Pangani or at Zanzibar.  Or the other way around
There is unique opportunity to make another stop just in between Arusha and the coast. The area is called Usmabara mountains and represents a unique mountain area also known as "the Switzerland of Tanzania". 

Arusha-Usambara mountains

The straight route from Arusha to the Usambara mountains takes you via Mombo to Lushoto / Mambo/Mtae By car or by Fasha bus.
If you have a 4x4 you can take a shortcut 45 min past Same.

Mkomazi National Park

A nice route is to go via Same to the Mkomazi national park. You enter the park with Same and leave it at the Kivingo gate. From there you reach the shortcut upto Mtae/Mambo. (4x4 needed)
