overview

Greystoke Mahale is a remote tented camp in the chimp-inhabited forests of the Mahale Mountains in West Tanzania. The camp stands at the base of the densely forested Mahale Mountains National Park on a remote beach and along the shores of Lake Tanganyika.

This area is home to the world's largest known population of chimpanzees. Trek through the rainforest where Mahale's endangered chimpanzees live, while leopard, bushbuck, bush pig, and a variety of birds and butterflies can also be spotted. The lake, with 250 species of tropical fish, is perfect for snorkelling and fishing, as well as kayaking.

Traveller Reviews

  • Greystoke Mahale is a very unique place. Trekking to see the chimps was amazing. The beach, kayaking, fishing and swimming in the lake was excellent.

    Raj Chowdhary, December 2015
  • We all agreed that Greystoke Mahale was absolutely the highlight of our trip. Not only is this place situated in a secluded, idyllic setting, but there is so much to do apart from the chimp trekking. It was truly magical - we loved it.
