Best place to stay in Mambo

Review of MamboViewPoint
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Jul 2023via mobile
Mambo view point lodge it's fantastic place if you want chilled out and relax after a trekking on Usambara mountains. Rooms are clean,spacious,with hot shower and spectacular views. Food is always fresh and delicious and hospitality of this place make you feel like home. Remember to take something warm with you because is located on 1900m so it becomes cold at night, but there is positives of that extra blanket and fire in fireplace in your room might become the most cosiest place on earth. Definitely recommend this place 👌
Date of stay: July 2023
Room Tip: Remember to take jacket with you July was pretty cold at night

        Wunderful Lodge with an amazing viewpoint. It was such a great experience. The diner and breakfast was delicious and the Stuff was so polite. The rooms were quite clean and very comfortable. I can highly recommend this accomodation for everyone who comes to Tanzania.

        Everything outstanding. Highly recommend! Perfect location and ambiance to explore and unwind in the Usambara mountains. Warm hospitality, excellent commitment to sustainability and engaging meaningfully with the local community, unbeatable views and charming rooms with everything you need.

        We stayed for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. We went on a hike and the tour guide Mambo set us up with was very knowledgeable. We also enjoyed early morning wandering, the super fresh food, sitting by the fireplace and playing with the friendly dogs!

        A gem. Asante sana for everything.

        Mambo View Point = amazing lodge! The view is incredible and you couldn’t imagine a better place to reset in nature…
        Dagmara is an amazing host who is always willing to help you with providing tips, guides and the best things to do in the area, However, the former owners are kind of disturbing you while eating dinner about their financial needs of their projects, but the problem had already been reported

        Claiming that Mambo View Point is a unique place is an understatement.

        Located in an incredibly picturesque spot in the Usambara Mountains, Mambo View Point is simply breathtaking! We spent almost a week in the "Chameleon" cottage overlooking the valley spread out at the foot of Mambo. On clearer days, we could even see Mount Kilimanjaro ☺️ The cottage completely met our expectations, with hot water on demand and a comfortable bed - what more could we ask for? ☺️

        I am simply amazed with this place and the initiatives undertaken by Dagmara for the local community! At first glance, you can see that she is fully committed to this with both her heart and mind. These are not just actions taken haphazardly, there is a deeper thought and a genuine desire to have a positive impact on the local community without any artificiality. Especially for children, because education is a foundation that is essential.

        Thanks to Dagmara, we were able to spend two truly unforgettable days in a community center she created in the neighboring village of Mtae. We did math and made postcards with the kids - it was a wonderful experience.

        Additionally, we used the guide recommended by Mambo View Point and went for a walk in the rainforest - everything was great!

        In summary, Mambo View Point is definitely more than just a place to stay with a picturesque view. It is a mission, a passion, and a natural beauty for people with open minds. I will definitely be back - sooner rather than later 🫶
