Mahale Mountains National Park Safari

The ultimate guide to your next Mahale Mountains National Park Safari

Get to Know Mahale Mountains National Park

This is an isolated park of clear lake water, sandy beaches and safaris to see chimps and other wildlife

Mahale is on the edge of Lake Tanganyika, unique in that the only access is by light aircraft or boat. There are no roads and very little infrastructure, which has helped to conserve the area as a habitat for chimpanzees. Mahale has the highest numbers of chimps in the world. Your chimpanzee experience will start with a trek through the rain forest while listening for the chimps. When you find them as they move through the forest, you will spend as much time with them as they allow. They aren’t overly habituated so your experience feels authentic.
