Tailor-made for ecotourism, the Tanga Region boasts unspoiled natural resources, untamed landscapes, and robust plant and animal life. Several national parks offer insight into Tanzania's northeastern wildlife, as well as the forest conservation efforts that support rare birds and the endangered red colobus monkey. Outdoor adventurers on holiday in the Tanga Region shouldn't miss the Usambara Mountains, one of the world's most biodiverse areas; the former German colonial town of Lushoto provides a comfortable base for exploration of the woodlands.
