Hondo Hondo Lodge
Hondo Hondo Lodge is also known as Udzungwa Forest Lodge, and is the Swahili word for Hornbill, situated on the border of the beautiful Udzungwa Mountains National Park, close to the Park Headquarters and the village of Mangula.
Built in 2010, the lodge provides the only luxurious and exclusive accommodation option in the Udzungwa Mountains area. The lodge offers a great ambiance, with a well stocked bar and a fine restaurant producing mouth-watering meals. Comfortable well-appointed rooms offer breath-taking views across the forest canopy and out over the highly fertile Kilombero Valley. The lodge also has a campsite offering a variety of accommodation.
A range of activities are available in the Udzungwa Mountains National Park, including some of Tanzania's finest birdwatching opportunities, hiking and trekking trails, swimming in waterfall plunge pools, and the chance to spot some of the area's remarkable primates such as the Black and White Colobus and the rare and endemic Sanje Crested Mangebey and the recently discovered Highland Mangebey.
After an exciting day's activities, enjoy the luxury of birdwatching and primate watching from the comfort of the hotel itself. Relax over sunset drinks on the terrace of the Udzungwa Forest Lodge bar, surrounded by the calls of Crowned, Silver-cheeked, and Trumpeter Hornbills from which the lodge takes its local name. Watching the troops of Colobus swing through the trees of the nearby forest canopy around sunset is a unique and exciting experience.
