Mahale Mountains National Park


The westernmost of all Tanzania’s National Parks, the Mahale Mountains overlook Lake Tanganyika and to the D.R.C on the horizon and are amongst the most scenic of all parks in Africa. What is beyond doubt is the challenge of access, with flights from Arusha, or the nearby Katavi National Park the only way to reach Mahale.A handful of exclusive lodges are nestled in the forest canopy and on the beaches of the lake, with visitors focusing their time on exploring the mist-shrouded Mahale Mountains that rise up sharply from the beach. Home to habituated chimpanzees, which guests can trek to on a daily basis, varied birdlife and crystal clear mountain pools, they are the ultimate adventure spot in Tanzania.Lazy afternoons cruising the lake on a dhow or relaxing on the beach are the order of the day here and welcome after busy mornings of trekking. Best-combined with a visit to Katavi, Mahale is a truly unique area and a must-do for adventurous safari-goers.
