After breakfast, transfer to the airstrip for your flight to Mahale where you will stay for 3 nights.
Welcome at the airstrip, right on the edge of the Lake and as there are no roads here so we head to camp by boat. After 1 ½ hours drifting down the coastline we reach camp, Greystoke Mahale, one the greatest safari camps in Africa. Lunch at the camp.
On a far-flung beach along the eastern shores of Lake Tanganyika , below a huge story-book tropical forest, lies the tiny sanctuary of Greystoke Mahale. The water is as clear as gin, the air scented and the living is very easy indeed. The forested slopes of the Mahale Mountains rise behind camp, home to the world’s largest known population of chimpanzees, with approximately 1000 individuals inhabiting the national park. Each day you can venture out into the forest, to observe and commune with these, our closest relatives, as they groom , wrestle and forage across the leafy floor.
Greystoke Mahale 6 open-fronted bandas made from dhow wood, on the forest edge, overlooking a pristine beach and the crystal waters of Lake Tanganyika. You’ll have three days at Greystoke Mahale where you’ll be able to trek once a day and then have the rest of the time to enjoy the beautiful scenery, photograph the birdlife and other habitants and once you’ve got enough shots for the day why not head down onto the beach with a G&T in hand and enjoy the amazing views across Lake Tanganika.
