Greystoke Mahale

Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania


Stay at Greystoke Mahale

Greystoke Mahale has just six wood and thatch bandas set on the edge of the forest line at the base of the mountains. Each one has an en-suite bathroom – accessible by a short board walk – with hot and cold running water, strong showers and flush toilets. As well as a dressing room and an upstairs chill-out deck.

For many years the camp in Mahale was simple tents. Greystoke Mahale was built to be as unique as its setting, so that it didn’t dominate its sensational natural surroundings. The rooms are tucked back into the forest line to ensure the only view is of the beach and lake beyond; they are made almost entirely from sustainable materials sourced on Lake Tanganyika. All the wood was reclaimed from wrecked or retired dhows bought from villages along the lake shore.

Greystoke Mahale sits on a pristine, white sandy beach overlooking the turquoise water of Lake Tanganyika, with the forested slopes of the 8000 ft Mahale Mountains rising behind. The main mess is the only structure on the beach and it is the focal point of camp.

Dine in the main mess banda on the beach and enjoy sundowners in the bar on the rocks at the end of the beach.

This camp is suited for those people who are adventurous, whether you are a couple, family, group or on your honeymoon, Greystroke Mahale attracts those who want to experience a truly remote and unique place.
