Mahale National Park
On the edge of Lake Tanganyika, nestled in the remote forest is Greystoke Mahale – a boutique camp, comprised of six thatched bandas, perfect for adventurers and those looking to explore the Mahale Mountains.
Come on a legendary journey to meet the most privileged primates on the planet: the wild chimpanzees of Mahale - and the trackers, guides and helpers who share their leafy Nirvana.
Due to the camp’s remote location, and absence of nearby roads, most will access the camp via a leisurely dhow ride along the stunning LakeTanganyika. The camp itself is a favourite in Western Tanzania and is operated by the well-established ‘Nomad Tanzania’, who also run sister camp ‘Chada Katavi’.
Like something from Robinson Crusoe, the camp boasts six beautifully designed, thatched bandas, each with its own private wooden decking, sheltered by the nearby forest, allowing a private and peaceful space to unwind. Its open front means you can enjoy the spectacular surroundings from the comfort of your own room, and even climb onto the bandas upper decking to enjoy another viewpoint.
Each room is equipped with an en-suite bathroom, with powerful showers and hot water on demand. You will also find lockable storage, and a writing desk (hopefully not to be used for any work!). In the communal areas, you will find a large thatched banda overlooking the beach, where guests can take meals and relax throughout the day, along with a cosy bar, perfect for sundowners, that lies perched on the rocks, near the water's edge.
All meals are included at Greystoke Mahale, from a beautiful buffet breakfast, fresh coffee and juices, followed by a lighter lunch and in the evening a three-course meal, to be enjoyed alongside the other guests, where you can share stories of your Mahale experience so far.
