This lushly vegetated 2629m-high volcanic peak has a deep-blue lake – the subject of local legends – about 200m below the crater rim. It is about 7km west of the main road north of Tukuyu. To get here via public transport, take any dalla-dalla travelling between Mbeya and Tukuyu and ask to be dropped off; there’s a small sign for Ngozi at the turn-off.
Once at the turn-off, if you haven’t come with a guide, you’ll be approached by locals offering their services; the going rate is about Tsh5000. If you’re short on time, you can go about half the distance from the main road to Ngozi by vehicle and then walk the remainder of the way. Once at the base, it’s about another steep hour or so on foot up to the crater rim.
