Greystoke Mahale is located in the Mahale Mountain National Park on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in Western Tanzania. With the largest remaining chimpanzee population in the world and countless other species of wildlife, this is a truly special place for animal lovers. You’ll feel as if you’re in Tarzan’s lost world of lush mountains and crystal clear pools and waterfalls.
Greystoke Mahale is nestled into the greenery on the shores of the lake; it is both romantic and inspiring. Open-fronted thatch and wood structures are positioned overlooking the beach with views of the lake from the terraces and upstairs lounges. The rustic interiors are fashioned using local dhow timber.
Activities include tracking habituated chimpanzees, kayaking, swimming, and snorkeling. You can also simply soak up the beauty of this wild and exotic place in your comfortable villa.
After flying into the Mahale Airstrip you are transferred by dhow boat to Greystoke – a 90-minute trip. We love Greystoke for its remoteness, but it is expensive to access and tricky to access due to flights on specific days of the week. We think that with careful planning, these off-the-beaten-path destinations are worth the effort!
