Mahale Mountains National Park


Mahale Mountains national park is found deep in the interior along the shores of Lake Tanganyika. A remote paradise deep in the heart of East Africa, Mahale is inaccessible by road. Mahale is famous for being close to the spot where Stanley uttered that immortal greeting “Doctor Livingstone, I presume” as well as its 800 strong population of wild chimpanzees.

Mahale’s beauty is diverse stretching from the azure waters of Lake Tanganyika to the jungle draped peaks of the mountain Mahale towering over the lake shores. This unique pristine eco-system is inhabited by not only the chimpanzees, but also troops of red-colubus monkeys, blue monkeys, savannah animals such as zebras, warthogs and giraffes, over 250 fish species, numerous birds including a vast array of forest dwellers.

The common activities here are chimpanzee tracking, snorkelling and sport fishing in Lake Tanganyika, walking safaris, mountain climbing and forest hikes.
