Iringa Budget Travel

Iringa is a pretty but somewhat run-down town in Tanzania, situated on a cliff overlooking the Little Ruaha River.

Iringa budget travel is popular on many Tanzania tours, due to its centrality to nearby attractions such as the Ruaha National Park and the Selous Game Reserve.

Iringa Budget Safaris

Iringa is the main center of the Tanzanian tea industry, and has a busy trading center with a number of markets selling everything from tea to the legendary East African speciality, Dabaga Chilli Sauce.

Many tourists prefer to stay overnight at Ruaha Park, however there are some good, and cheap accommodation options in Iringa which are ideal for budget travel.

Iringa budget safaris highlights include a visit to Isimilia, just 15 km away from town. This is where free-standing natural rock pillars formed by millions of years of weathering can be seen, and is one of Africa's most important sites for exploring the 60, 000 year old relics of the Acheulean Age, including axes, stone picks and hammers.
