is home to some of the last remaining wild chimpanzees in Africa.
Around 1,000 of these fascinating animals roam the isolated rainforest
of Mahale, a chain of dramatic peaks draped in lush vegetation falling
to Lake Tanganyika’s beaches far below.
Visitors are led on guided walks in
search of the chimpanzees, following clues such as the previous
night's nests - shadowy clumps high in the trees - or scraps of
half-eaten fruit and fresh dung.
Once found, the chimpanzees preen

In addition to a hike on the trail of
the chimpanzees, visitors can trace the Tongwe people's ancient
pilgrimage to the mountain spirits, trekking through enclaves of
rainforest to grassy ridges chequered with alpine bamboo. After a hot
walk in the forest, the clear waters of the lake, home to 250 species
of fish, beckon for a refreshing swim.
The best time for forest walks in
Mahale is during the dry season (May to October). The light rains of
October/November also present no real obstacle to visitors.
