Karibu Tanzania! Welcome to Tanzania! Today you will finally touch down in the capital city of Dar es Salaam on the Indian Ocean. Your private driver will await you in the arrivals hall of the terminal, where together you will drive out of the city and towards the northern Usambara Mountains. Over the course of this five-hour trip, the landscape will shift dramatically from the urban city into farmland before you begin to climb into the mountains. You will arrive at Muller’s Lodge, a restored colonial farmhouse in the western portion of the Usambara range. Cozy and quaint, this tranquil retreat will be your base for exploring the region over the coming days.
Arriving in the late afternoon, the remainder of the day will be spent relaxing around the lush lodge grounds. The property itself is in a stunning location, with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and ancient forests. Enjoy dinner in the main dining room before snuggling in beside the fireplace with a book as the cool mountain air blows through.
