Magombero Forest

Nearby Hondo Hondo lies a small fragment of forest, isolated from the main National Park and from the Selous Game Reserve 15km the other way.  This forest fragment is all that remains of the carpet of trees which once lay across the Kilombero Valley floor, and it is now surrounded by sugar cane plantation and other agricultural land use.  Within the forest you can find a plethora of bird life and also a heavy concentration of primates, particularly colobus.  A half day trip here can be done on bicycle from Hondo Hondo and is a great way to spend a few hours without hiking into the National Park itself.
