Is the Hondo Hondo Udzungwa Forest Tented Camp for Me?
Hondo Hondo is situated on the border of the Udzungwa Mountains National Park, close to the National Park Headquarters and main gate at Mangula. The lush green site lies on the border of the pristine rainforest 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.
Hondo Hondo offers accommodation to suit all tastes. For those that enjoy a touch of luxury on an African rainforest adventure, there are six luxury en-suite tented rooms. For the budget conscious, there is the alternative experience of sleeping under thatch in the thatched hut village on the hill. For a night under canvas, there is a camping area where visitors can put a tent up and relax, with facilities that include a bar and restaurant as well as solar heated hot water showers and western style lavatories.
