Welcome to Same
Same (sah-may) is a lively market town and the largest settlement in the southern Pares. You’ll need to pass through here to get to Mkomazi National Park and Mbaga, a centre for hikes in this area. Same has only minimal tourist infrastructure and the town is more suitable as a starting point for excursions into the Pares rather than as a base. If you want to stay a few days before heading into the villages, there are walks into the hills behind town, although for most of the better destinations you will need to take local transport at least part of the way. Sunday is the main market day, when traders from all over the Pares come to trade their wares.
