    4 Days Chimpanzees Trekking Tanzania

    Mahale Mountains, Lake Tanganyika

    • LUXURY OPTION

    DAY 1: ARUSHA—MAHALE

    With an early departure from our Arusha accommodation, we transfer to the Arusha airport for the charter flight to Mahale National Park. Famous for containing some of the last remaining wild chimpanzees in Africa, the Mahale Mountains National Park was gazetted in 1985, covers an area of 1 613 km. and is located about 128 km south of Kigoma town on the eastern shore of Lake Tanganyika. The western boundary of the park protects an adjacent 1.6 km wide strip of Lake Tanganyika’s waters. The land in and around Mahale is the traditional homeland of the Watongwe and Waholoholo tribes. The terrain is mostly rugged and hilly, and is dominated by the Mahale Mountains chain that runs from the northwest to the southeast across the park. The highest peak (Mount Nkungwe) rises to 2 462 m above sea level. This afternoon, take a bush walk around the camp to discover your new habitat.

    DAY 2: MAHALE

    The chimp trackers set off early and radio to camp when they have located the chimpanzees. From there is it our turn to push through incredible jungle to the desired location. Return to camp for lunch and resting.
