The Mountains of Morogoro: Trekking in Tanzania

A biodiversity hotspot, the mountains above Morogoro offer travellers panoramic views, beautiful scenery and a chance to step off the beaten path.


At the foot of the Uluguru Mountains lies Morogoro, a peaceful laid-back agricultural city in the east of Tanzania. From here a number of delightful trails and paths weave their way through the magnificent mountains that provide a beautiful backdrop to the city.

Pristine nature all around

Rarely visited by tourists, the mountains offer travellers pristine hikes in the incredibly lush nature that abounds on all sides. Tiny overgrown paths lead you past villages and farmland that hug the steep mountainside while waterfalls cascade down from up high.

Panoramic views from up above

At over 2600 metres, the summit towers over the city below with spectacular views stretching as far as the eye can see. It is an unbelievable view and well worth the arduous hike to the top.
