Enjoy a 4 day hiking tour of the Usambara Mountains in Lushoto and get to experience this extraordinary region which is tucked high in the hills, with a surprising local and colonial history. Enjoy its sublime natural beauty, with deep valleys and rushing mountain streams at the foot of steep terraced hillsides that rise up to meet the misty morning. There is evidence of early iron- working Neolithic settlements in these mountains between 3000 and 3500 years ago and then an influx of Bantu peoples around 2000 years ago who are thought to have migrated from Congo and some of these intermingled with the original tribes and thus originated the Shambaa or Sambaa, which are the people of the Usambaras today.
