Lovely hike.Great place for spending a few hours. Close to Mbeya and close to nature. Going down to the lake is a bit risky and not advised if you do this activity alone. Rain Forest, birds, and monkeys are all around.

A permit is needed to visit the Ngozi crater! It is a good day trip from Mbeya. Contact Festo at 255 756 852 428 or mbeyatreks @ gmail to get all the permits and guides settled!

James Bond helped us around Mbeya and was very honest and trustworthy. We spent a nice evening drinking beers and enjoying food. James is trustworthy and you can have great conversations with him. Joris Martens - Amsterdam
