Day 3: UDZUNGWA / SANJE WATERFALL TRAIL / 7Kms 3-5Hours.

After early breakfast start trekking leads to the spectacular trail up to Sanje waterfalls. The most popular trail in Udzungwa is Sanje Waterfall. This 200m waterfall is very impressive surrounded by rainforest with excellent views over the Kilombero floodplain 180m. At the top, there are two more waterfalls, both impressive, and you can swim in the cool waters of their plunge pools. This trek can be done by an enthusiastic hiker in half a day, heading quickly up the escarpment and back down again. We usually recommend a more leisurely approach, heading up the mountain in the morning, taking lunch on the top of the waterfall with its breath-taking views of the valley, and taking time out to swim during the heat of the day.
Then you can follow the trail around the side of the escarpment and head back down the mountainside, in the evening back to hotel diner and overnight at the UDZUNGWA FOREST CAMP / UDZUNGWA FALLS LODGE
