The Mahale Mountains are home to some of Africa’s last remaining wild chimpanzees; a population of roughly 800. The mountain’s vegetation contains a wide array of habitat types ranging from overlapping rainforests, woodlands and bamboo forest to montane forest and grasslands supporting a unique mix of flora and fauna. Visitors are definitely in for a treat if they make it to this corner of unspoilt Africa.
Each morning, wake up at your own pace. Rise early for a chance to watch the sun rise over the lake as you sip on your morning coffee cup or perhaps enjoy a lie in followed by a delicious breakfast with your toes in the sand. You may choose to engage in activities such as forest walks, swimming, water sports or visit the Park’s famous chimpanzees. While away the remainder of the day chilling on the beach with an ice-cold drink or head out into the lush forest to discover the many birds, butterflies and mammals inhabit the park on a hike. Alternatively, you can swim in ice-cold pools in the mountain waterfalls, go kayaking on the lake or, best of all, going in search of the park’s famous chimpanzees. In the evening, enjoy your drinks in the bar and dinner on the white sandy beach.
