Mahale Zoe's Camp


... also known as Greystoke Mahale Camp, is located in the Mahale area in the Western region of Tanzania.

Mahale Zoe's Camp is a very high specification permanent lodge in a prime beach-front location in Mahale Mountains National Park, the best place in Africa for viewing chimpanzees, an utterly remote and a stunningly beautiful location. It is a beautiful and very stylish camp, one of the best and most famous in Africa, with a fabulous quirky main building and six large guest suites, wonderfully hosted and expertly guided. Activities include very high quality chimp tracking, hiking, swimming, snorkelling, sailing and kayaking. The chimps are usually most accessible during the Jul/Oct dry season, but can usually be found throughout the year a little further into the forest.

The main potential downsides at Mahale Zoe's Camp are that it is very expensive and there is often a chronic lack of availability. It is also relatively difficult to access. There are quite tight restrictions of chimp tracking and always a small chance of not getting to see them. 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.
