Thanks @inyathi for this informative and excellent report and thanks @TonyQ for bringing this back to the fore.

I visited Udzungwa in 2005 on a day trip from Mikumi. The spectacular view from the top of Sanje waterfall brings back great memories.
I never got to see either red colobus or mangabey that day as I'd hoped so have much enjoyed your photos and your descriptions and photos of other sections of the park along with all the detailed info.

We visited Udzungwa NP in August 2014. We stayed at Udzungwa Falls Lodge. It was pretty upscale for us but a pleasant two night break from an extended mobile camp safari in Southern Tanzania.

There were several in our group in the 60 to 75 year old category and we did the hike up to the top of Sanje Falls. It was a fairly strenuous hike up a well maintained trail. We took our time and all made it to have lunch at the top of the falls. What a great view and privilege to visit this seldom used park. We met only one other tourist and his guide.

We did get a sighting of the red colobus.

Proof of how unknown this park is evidenced that my review in TripAdvisor of Udzungwa NP was the first one done.

@inyathi Thank you for an excellent traveler report about a place I knew nothing about until now. It would be well worth a stop for a couple of days as part of a longer safari.
