Mbeya Peak and Rungwe

Mbeya transfers to rungwe climb & Peak

Mbeya Peak and Rungewe

Just northwest of Mbeya is Mbeya Peak (2820m). It’s the highest point in the Mbeya Range and makes an enjoyable day hike, best done by arranging a local guide through your hotel or a Mbeya travel agency.There are several possible routes. One goes from Mbalizi junction, 12km west of town on the Tunduma road. Take a dalla-dalla to Mbalizi, get out at the sign for Utengule Coffee Lodge, head right and follow the dirt road for 1km to a sign for St Mary’s Seminary. 

Turn right here and follow the road up past the seminary to Lunji Farm and then on to the peak. With a vehicle, you can park at Lunji Farm and continue on foot. Allow five hours for the return trip, and only climb accompanied by a guide, which you can arrange at Mbeya travel agencies or through most hotels.

Mount Rungwe:

This 2960m dormant volcano, much of which is protected as the Rungwe Forest Reserve, rises up to the east of the main road north of Tukuyu, adjoining Kitulo National Park. It marks the point where the eastern and western arms of the Rift Valley meet, and is an important centre of endemism.

With an early start, you can hike up and down in a day (allow about 10 hours), passing through pristine patches of tropical forest. There are several routes, although not all are always open. Paths are often overgrown and obscure, and it’s easy to get lost, so a guide is essential. Before climbing, you need to go first to the Ofisi za Muhifadi ya Milimani Rungwe, in Tukuyu. 

It’s in the Municipality Building (Majengo ya Halmashauri) opposite NMB bank (note: not NBC bank). There, you can pay the required fee and hire a guide (US$15 per group). It will also give you information about which route to use. Both Rungwe Tea & Tours and Bongo Camping can also help you organise a Rungwe climb.
