Greystoke Mahale Mountains Camp Tanzania

Greystoke Mahale Mountains Camp Tanzania is an exclusive bush lodge located in Mahale Mountain National Park in Western Tanzania along Kangwena Beach on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. Mahale Mountain National Park is home to the world’s largest known population of chimpanzees.

There are no roads within 60 km of the camp, and access is only by aircraft using the shared charter flights which operate on Mondays and Thursdays only from Arusha, or by private charter. Kalolwa Airstrip is the closest airstrip and it’s about 1.5 hours by boat to the camp.

The chimpanzee population in Mahale Mountains National Park is the largest known and due to its size and remoteness, the chimpanzees flourish. The closest major town to Mahale Mountains National Park is  Kigoma. it’s about 130km north of Mahale along the lakeshore.

Greystoke Mahale Mountains National Park Tanzania

Greystoke Mahale Mountains Camp Tanzania consists of 6 thatched bandas with en-suite bathrooms and uninterrupted lake views. The main lodge area is an iconic image, a huge thatched canopy framed in the middle of the beach with a backdrop of the lush rainforest.  The bandas are scattered along a soft-sand beach. Built from reclaimed dhow wood, they are two stories high.

The rooms are very open, encouraging ‘barefoot luxury’ with wooden walkways to the bathroom and also to the top deck which has a relaxing area with great views out over the lake. The bathrooms have flush toilets, powerful showers, and hot water on demand and are partially open to the forest.

This is usually the setting for the camp’s delicious buffet breakfasts and light lunches, with everyone eating together.  Greystoke has a large central dining area with a communal dining table, Library, and open-air bar. Most meals are taken in the main building or outside on the beach. 

Three-course dinners are served in the dining room too, following pre-dinner drinks at the spectacular ‘Sunset Bar’. This is found on rocks at the end of the beach, and it’s the perfect place for sundowners at the end of every day!.

The lodge also contains a reading room, on the upper floor. There are a few board games here too, and breathtaking views over the lake waters. Mahale Mountain National Park, forest is home to much more than the Chimpanzees such as bushbuck, bush pigs, leopards, amazing birdlife, and plenty of other primate species.
