What’s the Best Way to Get to Udzungwa Mountain National Park?

How to get to Udzungwa mountain national park.

The question of how to get to Udzungwa Mountains National Park is frequently asked, but due to the park’s location in Mang’ula, a village near the train routes from Dar es Salaam to Zambia, and the park’s simple accessibility because of the connecting highway roads, there is no need to worry about it. The park can be reached by various means, including by road, air, and train.

Due to its forested nature and lack of landing sites, Udzungwa Mountains National Park is about 360 km (almost due west) of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and is best reached by road. It is not far from Mikumi National Park, and it takes 4 to 5 hours to travel on Morogoro Road from Mikumi town to Sanje Village via Kilombero and the mighty River Ruaha.
Driving through the new route to the Selous Game Reserve from Dar es Salaam and on to Udzungwa National Park, which also connects to Mikumi National Park, and back to Dar es Salaam is another option for reaching there.

There are daily charter flights from Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar that connect to Udzungwa at Kilombero Airstrip for affluent travelers who prefer to travel by air. These flights also connect Udzungwa National Park to the other safari locations in Tanzania’s southern circuit. You can use Air Link’s daily scheduled flights to travel by air to Mikumi National Park Airstrip and then take an overland vehicle down to the park’s valley.
Another way to travel to the park is by using the railway, which runs down Mang’ula village’s main street on its way from Dar es Salaam to Zambia. However, this alternative is not very recommended due to the train’s occasionally unpredictable delays caused by its lengthy route. If you plan to go by road, make your transportation arrangements through Enclose Africa Safaris to prevent disappointments and safari delays.
