Iringa District

Iringa District: Located in the southern highlands of Tanzania, near the country’s legislative capital of Dodoma and the agricultural centre of Morogoro, Iringa is a pleasant small town and a focus of regional agriculture and production. Its streets are quiet and peaceful, and the market offers a colourful scene of traditional African culture. Iringa overlooks the Little Ruaha River and it is a popular stopping point for visitors to Ruaha National Park.

 

Historically, Iringa was a centre of colonial administration. During German occupation, the German military constructed the town as a fortified defense against marauding Hehe tribal warriors intent on driving them out of the region. Gangilonga Rock, a site just outside of the town, is a legendary spot where the Hehe chief at that time, Chief Mkwawa, met his people and decided on how to fight the Germans. Iringa was also the site of several battles during the First and Second World Wars and the Commonwealth War Graves are located just outside of town.

 

Iringa District wards: Gangilonga, Igumbilo, Ipogolo, Ilala, Isakalilo, Kihesa, Kitanzini, Kitwiru.

Mufindi District

Mufindi is the perfect place for travellers seeking exciting experiences in the mountains of South Tanzania! A great range of activities is available, and children of all ages are welcome at Mufindi Highland Lodge, our favourite property here.

 

Mufindi is characterised by rolling hills, covered in tea and timber plantations and beautiful natural rainforest. The rainforest is home to monkeys and plenty of birdlife. Among the region’s specials is Livingstone’s turaco, a handsome blue-and-green feathery friend named after David Livingstone’s brother Charles. This species is hard to miss, due to its strident tones!

 

This region is famed for two industries – timber and tea. In 1986 a working farm was developed from a parcel of land purchased by the Fox family. Over time the farm evolved into Mufindi Highland Lodge, effectively opening the area to tourism.

As of 2002, Mufindi District was administratively divided into twenty-eight wards: Bumilayinga, Ifunda, Ifwagi, Igombavanu, Igowole, Ihalimba, Ihanu, Ihowanza, Ikweha, Isalavanu, Itandula, Kasanga, Kibengu, Kiyowela, Luhunga, Makungu, Malangali, Mapanda, Mbalamaziwa, Mdabulo, Mninga, Mpanga TAZARA, Mtambula, Mtwango, Nyololo, Rungemba, Sadani.
