"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."
"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."
