The plateau is a natural lookout with views of sugar plantations against a patchwork of grassland and mountain forest extending over 100 kilometres. The centrepiece is the Sanje River which reinvents itself as a spectacular waterfall, plunging 170 meters through the forest to land in a spray of mist in the valley below. Two types of monkeys, the Iringa red colobus monkey and the Sanje Crested Mangabey, are endemic to the Udzungwa Mountains and are no found elsewhere in the mountains of Eastern Tanzania . Furthermore Udzungwa is particularly alluring to birdwatchers.
Udzungwa National Park – Covers 1,990 square kilometres and is particularly suitable for hiking and climbing with trails through the rainforest and on the escarpment.
