Mahale National Park

mahale ntl park Mahale National Park

In Mahale National Park, you can trace the Tongwe people’s ancient pilgrimage to the mountain spirits, hiking through the montane rainforest belt – home to an endemic race of Angola colobus monkey – to high grassy ridges chequered with alpine bamboo.

Size : 3,230 sq km (1,250 sq miles).  Location: South-West Tanzania, bordering Lake Tanganyika.

Then bathe in the impossibly clear waters of the world’s longest, second-deepest and least-polluted freshwater lake – harbouring an estimated 1,000 fish species – before returning as you came, by boat.

The highest peak in the Mahale range is at 2462m, and the only way to explore this park is on foot, there are no roads. There are between 1 500 and 2 000 chimpanzees in the park, making this one of the best places in Africa to get close to pan troglodytes. This is where successive teams of Japanese researchers, unheralded and quietly, have done some of the most important scientific work on primates and the links between chimpanzees and humans.

Besides the chimps, leopard, lion, kudu, eland, buffalo, roan and sable antelope, olive baboons, red colobus and white spot nose mangabeys and a host of other game wander through this reserve. Dominated by the brooding presence of Nkungwe Mountain with vegetation ranging through almost the entire gamut of African botany (from lowland forest to brachystegia woodland) this is one of Africa’s most intriguing parks. Accommodation (aside from the luxury tented camp) is in a elementary camp site with bungalows and camp site.

All journeys have a beginning and an end

All journeys have a beginning and an end, but what happens in between is really up to you.  You may prefer to lie in the same hammock watching hippos at the same waterhole for ten days in a row, or you may have identified a dozen safari camps and four beach resorts that you want to visit before you return home.  It’s simply a process of selection, and here we can be really helpful.  We’ll give you our best advice about the most exciting sequence in which to experience your choices, and we’ll iron out any kinks involved in getting you from here to there—and back again, of course.
