Nestled on the banks of Lake Tanganyika in western Tanzania, the Mahale Mountain National Park is the undisputed domain of the chimpanzees. It's remote location offers a natural paradise for the chimpanzee population to thrive and flourish in what is the last remaining wild chimpanzees habitat in Africa along with the smaller but more renowned Gombe Stream National Park. While not a first choice safari destination in Tanzania, a chimpanzee tracking expedition allows us to understand better human's closest relatives at close encounters.
Why Mahale Mountain National Park?
Mahale Mountain National Park is not only home to the chimpanzees but is also a thriving ground for mammals such as lions, giraffes, zebras and a wide variety of primates including yellow baboon, colobus monkeys and more.
