Udzungwa Mountains National Park

Udzungwa Mountains National Park is the only park in Tanzania with eleven primate species, with five of those species living only within the park boundaries, such as diurnal sanje crested mangabey, rungwecebus kipunji, endangered iringa red colobus, matandu dwarf galago and mountain dwarf galago. Primates that are found in other parts of Tanzania that are also found within the park are black and white colobus, yellow baboon, blue monkey and vervet monkey.

Dense, rich vegetation thrives here because of the significant rainfall that forms as a result of humidity from the Indian Ocean that condenses at the elevations that range from 820 feet to more than 8,450 feet at Luhomero.
