Said was very helpful to find a place for us for the first evening when we arrived to Lusotho and then our 3 days advanture started. Said and his helper Hasan were very friendly and willing to...

We went on a 4 day hike with 3 overnight stays. We really enjoyed it, beautiful scenery, nice villages and a great guide. Said brings you to nice stays with a lot of hospitality and knows a lot about the environment. We recommended it to friends as well and they also enjoyed it a lot.

Said and Hassan did such a wonderful job making our 3-day hike something we won't forget. We travelled from Lushoto to Mtae walking through the jungle, farmland and villages. The views were breathtaking. Our guides were friendly and very knowledgeable of the area we hiked through. Highly recommend Usamabra Adventures!

We spent 2 days on the road with Said Salim. We were disappointed by the way Said organised our trip, and by the very few pieces of information he gave us. The first day we walked until Lokosi, where we had lunch at 2h30 PM, in a local "restaurant" (Said chose our food : rice and fat meat). Then we... More

Myself and 7 friends spent 7 days with Said and could not recommend a better tour guide! We started off with a 3 day hike in Lushoto. Not only did we get to see some of the most breathtaking views on the hike but we learned about the local ecology and culture from Said which really added to the experience.... More

My wife and I first went hiking with Said Salim three years ago, in June 2013 (see our previous review here: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g1152711-d2720893-r179225545-Usambara_Adventures_Day_Tours-Lushoto_Tanga_Region.html#CHECK_RATES_CONT).

My boyfriend and I booked a 3-days-hiking tour with Said in june 2016 during our stay in Tanzania. To us, it was one of the most beautiful activities we did there because we saw such an impressive diversity of nature and landscape in the Usambara mountains. We hiked very high through the rain forest, we also visited different villages and... More

Our 3 days in Usambara Mountains with Said Salem were absolutely fantastic! Said is a really good and professional guide, who knows everything about the nature and culture hiding in Usambara Mountains. We felt both secure and entertained in his company. He will find the right pace and hike that fits to you. Our 3 days (from Lushoto-Mtae) were nothing... More

Said Salim took me on the 3 trek trip from Lushoto to Mtai. Wonderful young man - and he seemingly knew everything about plants, animals and culture. Was fun to spend a few days with. A highlight of my trip to Tanzania.
