Mambo Viewpoint Lodge
is located in the Usambara Mountains
area in the northeast
region of Tanzania
This rather cool little lodge is located way out on its own at the northern end of the Usambara and has spectacular views out to the west.
Public areas are stone under thatch and contain a gift shop, bar and restaurant. Guest accommodation is in a range of tents and permanent structures, including the spectacularly positioned Mbokoi House, which is worth going through the slideshow to see.
Apart from the amazing views, the main attraction is walking amongst the pretty hilltop villages and up to nearby mountain peaks.
Mambo Viewpoint Lodge really is a fantastically out of the way location. It takes a good three hours to drive here from either Mkomazi or Lushoto, along some dramatic highland roads. Whether or not there is enough here to cause many people to take this rather tortuous route is questionable. But we do hope so.
