Perched at cool 1600m on a cliff overlooking the valley of little Ruaha River Iringa was initially built up by Germans at a turn of the turn of the country as bastion against the local Hehe people. Now it’s a district capital, an important agricultural centre and the getaway for visiting Ruaha National park. The Mufindi Highlands is a scenic upland area which lies 100km south-east of Iringa and is renowned for its extensive tea plantations. Mufindi Farm lodge and Mufindi highland lodge are the best known accommodation in the area, the cosy family run retreat from which you can tour the tea estates and processing factories, visit local villages, go walking, horse-riding, fly-fishing and golf. So far the place is perfect for tree plantation of fruits, timbers and environmental conservational purposes though we bring your feelings close to our areas of operation when you are around the highlands.
