Guides for hikes can be arranged at Lomwe Secondary School; ask for the school director. Even if school isn’t in session, someone will be around to help. Expect to pay Tsh40,000 for the guide, plus a Tsh4000 village development fee, a Tsh4000 forest fee and a Tsh6000 coordinator's fee. All fees are per person per day.

In addition to short walks, a long day-hike is possible into Kindoroko Forest Reserve (which begins about 7km south of Usangi village) to the top of Mt Kindoroko (2113m), the highest peak in the northern Pares. From the upper slopes of Mt Kindoroko you can see over the Maasai Steppe to the west and to Lake Jipe and into Kenya to the northeast.
