Mahale Mountains – Where to stay


Out in the west of Tanzania, the Mahale Mountains are made for the serious safari-goer. Exceptional chimpanze viewing and unspoilt wilderness make this a truly one of a kind destination. 

Mahale Mountains – Best Places To Stay In Mahale Mountains



Greystoke Mahale

Greystoke is one of the best lodges in Africa, there is really nowhere else like it and the game experience is very different – trekking in the Mahale Mountains for Chimpanzees!  Lake Tanganyika is an ancient lake and the second largest by volume in the world.  The main thatched building sits on the white beach and the 6 bandas are hidden into the edge of the undergrowth with incredible views out onto the water.  It’s not cheap but if you have travelled all this way then you simply must stay at this lodge.

Nkungwe Beach Lodge

Nkungwe, sometimes known as Kungwe, is our second choice lodge in Mahale Mountain National Park after the famous Mahale Greystoke just next door; but we like Nkungwe for its simplicity, location on the shore of Lake Tanganyika and value. The main attraction of Mahale is the chimpanzees in the hills and clients visit the same clan of chimps as the Greystoke guests, although they stagger the visit times.  When you actually arrive at the Mahale airstrip you will then need to take the boat down the lake to arrive at the lodge. There are no roads or vehicles inside the national park.
