The Mahale Mountains in Western Tanzania are the ultimate location for a chimpanzee trekking safari. Mahale National Park is home to a large group of chimps habituated and studied since the 1960s. Mahale is also one of the most remote and scenically breathtaking areas in Tanzania with mountains, forest and the crystal clear waters of Lake Tanganyika.
Lake Tanganyika is the world's longest, second-deepest and least polluted freshwater lake - with an estimated 1,000 fish species. Swim, snorkel and fish in the lake, whilst staying at Mbali Mbali Mahale.
This Tanzania lodge is on the edge of Lake Tanganyika and has ten walk-in tents with thatched roofs on raised wooden platforms, set back on the edge of the forest on the beach. The camp operates on solar power and lamps, so there is no noise disturbance from generators.
Mbali Mbali Mahale welcomes children, but they must share a tent with adults. Children over the age of 12 may partake in Chimpanzee treks.
