Mahale Mountains chimpanzee safaris


... are arguably the finest wildlife interaction experiences in the world, set in one of the most beautiful and remote locations on the continent. This is certainly best place in Africa to see chimpanzees in the wild.

Mahale Mountains National Park in Western Tanzania. It is a fabulously remote and beautiful national park, which experiences very low visitor numbers. It is comprised of gorgeous forested mountains, beautiful beaches and a truly remarkable lake. As well as the awesome chimpanzee experience, activities include sailing, kayaking, swimming and snorkeling. The park is home to a couple of really superb camps.

The main potential downsides is that visiting Mahale is unavoidably very pricey and it difficult and expensive to access. There are also restrictions on chimp tracking and the slight risk of not seeing the chimps. Guests need to be reasonably fit and there is a minimum age of 12 years old for chimp trekking. There is a risk of crocodiles in the lake.
