On a beach beside Lake Tanganyika sits Greystoke Mahale
. Utterly remote, spellbindingly beautiful. Some of our clients treat this as a beach hideaway, swimming, snorkelling and canoeing on the lake, gazing up at the surrounding mountains. But the main attraction here is the chimpanzees. You can benefit from years of painstaking work by researchers inspired by Jane Goodall and come close to families of chimpanzees, watching them move through forests, feeding and looking after their young.
Like gorilla tracking
, it can involve a long trek through rainforest, but the reward is entrancing. For its sense of remoteness, setting, star-filled skies and sublime beauty Mahale will be one of those places that stay bright among your treasured memories.
