The magical forests of the Mahale Mountains are home to the world’s largest known population of chimpanzees with approximately 1000 inhabiting the national park. The remoteness and stunning beauty of the location combined with the quality of the camps in the area and the thrill of observing our closest living primates in their natural habitat, make the Mahale Mountains one of our top Tanzania tips. Stay at the beautiful Greystoke Mahale, set on a far-flung beach along the eastern shore of crystal clear Lake Tanganyika.
