Like its northern neighbor Gombe, Mahale park is best known for having a wild chimpanzee population of around 800 individuals.

In Tanzania’s Mahale Mountains National Park,spectacular peaks rise from crystal clear Lake Tanganyika, creating one among the foremost dramatic nature settings anywhere. On the slopes, thick forests provide the right home for a few of our closest living relatives, chimpanzees. On the Tanzania Chimp Adventure, you’ll spend your mornings tracking these fascinating creatures, watching their daily routines and comic antics.

Your afternoons are going to be spent relaxing on the white sand beach or boating in Africa’s deepest and longest lake. All the while, you’ll see precious few people as there are not any roads resulting in this remote wilderness, and it’s only accessible by boat.

The season (May -October) is that the best period. However, Mahale Mountains park is accessible all year round.
