Lushoto Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
It offers excellent opportunities for hiking both in the mountains, partly covered by Afromontane forest. Ecological tours are organized and are a good way of exploring the region. The popular pot plant Saintpaulia has its only wild occurrences in Tanzania, and particularly in the Usambara Mts.
It's a great place to get away from the heat of the coast or the dust of the plains. The people are particularly hospitable and the whole town has a lovely vibe to it. Accomodation in the town centre is cheap and there are some more upmarket options in the surrounding area. A word of warning though, those who suffer vertigo might want to think twice about taking the bus up the perilous road from Mombo!
