Walk downhill to the famous Irene view point. On the way back, visit the Irene Farm and stop for a picnic.

Jerome is an excellent leader and I highly recommend his trips. I had a great experience on a Tanzania bicycle tour he led for IBike. The people in his town of Lushoto are very nice and the scenery in the area is great. His friend Emanuel (pictured) is a very knowledgeable naturalist. This was my first trip to Africa and it was a great cross-cultural experience.

Dear Jerome
We so enjoyed the time we spent with you walking in the Usambara mountains last month. Thank you for your warmth and knowledge and your willingness to share all you knew with us – and answer all our questions about anything from farming to politics to village life. Our ‘educational strolls’ together were a highlight of our trip to Tanzania.

We were privileged to meet some astounding people and witness the care and vision of many to reclaim the land and secure its future through reforestation, careful planting, industrious terracing, irrigation schemes and collective enterprise.

The children busy around the home, at play or in school were a delight and inspiration to us. We have much to learn about respect and commitment to education.

We came away from Tanzania refreshed and invigorated, inspired by the country and its people, what you have achieved as a nation and your hope in and for the future.

Our warmest thanks
