Description - Camp

Udzungwa Forest Tented Camp is situated right on the border of the Udzungwa Mountains National Park, close to the National Park Headquarters and main gate. The eco-lodge lies right on the border of the pristine rain forest and offers excellent views of the forest canopy, in which there are several species of monkey, including the endemic Udzungwa Red Colobus, the remarkable Sanje Crested Mangebey, and the Black and White Colobus. A number of different hornbill species fly in over the forest edge and settle in trees along the borders of the rainforest in large numbers every evening at sunset, and the valley echoes with their distinctive calls.

Accommodation
En-suite Tented Rooms

Hondo Hondo Camp has six Forest en-suite tents for guests requiring a comfortable base in the middle of the African bush. Each is furnished with items made from renewable sources such as coconut wood and bamboo. The beds are single or double spring mattresses, feather pillows and soft throws made by local women weavers. The open-air bathrooms and secluded verandas offer views up into the nearby forest canopy, along with western style flush toilets and rain showers. Hot water is provided by a solar water heating and all electricity is generated by solar as well.

Traditional Thatched Huts

For those who love adventure but want to keep their costs to a minimum, Udzungwa Forest Tented Camp offers five traditional Swahili Thatched Huts.
