13 Days Tanzania East coast safari Overview.

The east coast consists of Magoroto Forest Reserve, Tanga and Pangani. Magoroto Forest Reserve with its tropical rainforest is the perfect spot for a getaway and outdoor camping.

The estate is located at an altitude of 850m above sea level where temperatures are pleasant all year long. The estate offers stunning views from the Muheza Valley to the Indian Ocean. Enjoy the lush rainforest with rare plants and bird species, explore the dense tropical forest with organic spices or have a picnic or swim in our beautiful lake!

Along with the neighbouring Mlinga Forests, Magoroto forms part of the East Usambara Mountains, which are world-renowned for their high species endemism and rich floral and fauna diversity. They are recognized as part of a Biodiversity Hotspot (WWF & IUCN), an “Important Bird Area” (Wildlife Conservation Society of Tanzania – WCST) and a “Man and Biosphere Reserve (UNESCO).

African Violets (Saintpaulia) have been promoted as flagship plants for the conservation of these forests. Magoroto Forest Reserve being in Tanga, this trip is complemented by a beach safari to Pangani. Specific to Ushongo village, one of the most calm places & beaches we have ever experienced in Tanzania.
