Udzungwa Forest Tented Camp (Hondo Hondo)

Ecofriendly accommodation in Southern Tanzania


Udzungwa Forest Tented Camp is situated right on the border of the Udzungwa Mountains National Park, close to the National Park Headquarters and main gate at Mangula. The lodge is known locally as Hondo Hondo meaning "hornbill" in Swahili, due to the amazing number of these remarkable birds which make the area their home.Hondo Hondo aims to provide a high standard of accommodation and great access to Tanzania's remarkable wildlife and landscapes through co-operation with the local community and provision of excellent facilities. Built by a local workforce and providing employment throughout both the construction and operational phases, the ultimate goal is to increase international awareness of the Udzungwa Mountains National Park, bringing in more visitors to appreciate the remarkable diversity of wildlife here and to contribute to the improvement of local community livelihoods. We are proud of our low-impact, eco-friendly ethos and we continue to find ways to improve our services to our guests while using recognised best practice methods of keeping our footprint on the earth as low as possible. All water is heated with solar water heaters, and we are currently installing a mini-hydro power generator so we will be able to power all lights, fridges and other electrical equipment entirely through renewable sustainable energy sources.
