Mahale Mountains
National Park in Western Tanzania is the best place in Africa to see chimpanzees in the wild and arguably the finest wildlife interaction experiences in the world.

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 snorkelling. 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.
