Located in a truly remote environment in the Mahale National Park on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, with its turquoise waters and white idyllic beach, is Greystoke Mahale. Featuring six quirky en suite bandas with views across to the Congo, they each have thatched roofs, are made of dhow wood and have an upstairs deck – the ideal spot to relax and stare endlessly at the beautiful lake.
The rustic camp sits on the edge of the forest, the ideal location to explore deeper into the surroundings and discover our closest relatives, the chimpanzees. The area has one of the biggest populations, with over sixty wild chimps, as well as eight other primate species and a multitude of different flora including medicinal plants.
Unwind after an adventurous day in the spacious central area, there is a library of interesting books to lose yourself in, a bar with refreshing drinks and a dining area with a communal table for you to share your stories of the day.
