Ecotourism generates funds for conservation, reduces threats to wildlife, and benefits communities.

Prior to the Germans the Usambara Mountains were already inhabited by the Lushoto an eco - friendly tourism spot. Lushoto can be reached from Mombo situated on the main Tanga, Arusha highway at the fort of the western Usambara. Driving up here on a tarmac through escarpments is a pleasant experience. Twisting and turning around roads, stopping green and gray walks of the mountains running and falling rivers colorful birds, tiny villages deep in the valleys and over obliging people make Lushoto a focal point for eco - tourists. The town also offers an excellent study of tradition and customs of Wasambaa farmers. Various view points on the edge of the mountain are also interesting parts of the tourism programme. All these can be experienced in places like Irente, Mtae, Mlalo, Soni, and Mazumbai.
Lushoto gives a feeling of being on the Swiss Alps. The town inspires the visitors to include in reverting what is behind the curtains of nature. The Germans have played a very vital role in developing Lushoto.
Udzungwa is a magnet for hikers. An excellent network of forest trails includes the popular half-day ramble to Sanje Waterfall, which plunges 170 metres (550 feet) through a misty spray into the forested valley below.
The more challenging two-night Mwanihana Trail leads to the high plateau, with its panoramic views over surrounding sugar plantations, before ascending to Mwanihana peak, the second-highest point in the range.
Ornithologists are attracted to Udzungwa for an avian wealth embracing more than 400 species, from the lovely and readily-located green-headed oriole to more than a dozen secretive Eastern Arc endemics.

Those are ideal places for walking safaris,nature trekking, bird watching and natural waterfalls swimming.
