While Kilimanjaro remains the most well-known mountain in Tanzania, and possibly the world, there are other hiking adventures for travelers looking for something different. For instance, Udzungwa Mountains National Park not only offers a different hiking trail, but also impressive species to behold.
With the second largest amount of biodiversity in an African national park, Udzungwa contains more than 400 types of birds, 2,500 kinds of plants and six primate species. Hikers will feel as though they've stepped into multiple worlds, as the national park includes grassland, a tropical rainforest, a mountain forest and miombo woodland.
The park is only accessible by foot, and there are a number of trails available for each kind of hiker. Whether travelers only want to spend an hour exploring or want to take part on a six-day excursion, there's something for everyone depending on how much time they have allotted in their visit.
The park's website recommends people who are looking to see monkeys may want to reserve more than a day, as there are no guarantees these animals will be spotted right away.
