Pare Mountains

Pare Mountains

The lovely and seldom visited Pare Mountains, divided into northern and southern ranges, lie southeast of Kilimanjaro and northwest of the Usambara range. Like the Usambaras, they form part of the ancient Eastern Arc chain, and their steep cliffs and forested slopes host a number of unique birds and plants. Also like the Usambaras, the Pares are densely populated, with many small villages linked by a network of paths and tracks. The main ethnic group here is the Pare (also called the Asu). While there are some historical and linguistic differences among various Pare groups, socially they are considered to be a single ethnic entity.
The Pare Mountains are not as developed for tourism as the Usambaras, and you’ll be mostly on your own when exploring. Thanks to the relative isolation, the traditions and folklore of the Pare have remained largely untouched. Unlike the Usambaras, there is no major developed infrastructure base from where you can take a series of hikes.
The best way to begin exploration is to head to Same and then up to Mbaga (for the south Pares) or to Usangi (for the north Pares). From both Usangi and Mbaga there are hikes ranging from half a day to three days or more, and English-speaking guides can be arranged.

These custom ready-made itineraries are only inspired by our travel experts and from the travelers who have traveled with us and given us positive feedback about their tour itineraries so we choose to share them with our future clients to have an opportunity to taste them. But we are always flexible in creating a tailor-made itinerary for our clients, so feel free to tell us what you want to experience on your trip (parks to visit, type and standard of accommodation, when to visit, number of days, etc.) and our safari experts will advise and prepare a nice proposal for you
