An excellent Tanzania Chimpanzee safari to experience and learn about these amazing primates – you will trek to see the chimpanzees in Mahale Mountains National Park. After a morning hike through the rainforests, there is no better way to recoup your energies on the soft sand beach, and the waters of the lake. You can snorkel or swim in the clear waters, fish, or kayak along the lakeshore.
Day 1 - Arrival and transfer to Rivertrees Lodge
Day 2 - Set off after an early breakfast for the flight to Tanzania’s south-western Katavi National Park. Stay 4 nights in one of only six classic safari tents at Chada Katavi Camp, perfectly positioned for panoramic views over the Chada plain.
Days 3-5 - Enjoy 3 full days on safari in the remote wilderness of Katavi National Park where hippos pack the rivers, huge herds of Cape buffalo and elephant graze the floodplains and predators - lion, leopard and hyena – stalk their prey.
Katavi National Park: Guests have the option of an overnight fly-camping expedition deep into Katavi’s untamed bush (small additional charge). Bedrolls under mosquito nets, piping hot water from bucket showers and fabulous bush tukka under the stars ensure you have the essential creature comforts!
Day 6 - A short morning flight takes you to Mahale, set on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. From here you continue your journey by dhow boat to Greystoke Mahale Lodge. As you sail along the calm clear waters of the lake the coastline and villages slip by, becoming increasingly remote until you see the verdant Mahale Mountains in the distance, towering above the lodge - a truly breathtaking sight!
Stay 3 nights at Greystoke Mahale in one of the beach bandas, set on a crescent beach at the foot of these spectacular, forested mountains.
Day 7-8 - Mahale is jaw-dropingly beautiful. The mountain rainforest contains one of Africa’s last populations of wild chimpanzees, a variety of other primates and myriad forest birds. Seventy chimps live in the mountains close to camp, and have become habituated to human presence over two decades of contact. The guides have developed intimate knowledge of individual animals and their life stories. There may also be opportunities to observe leopard, bushbuck, bushpig, and a multitude of birds and butterflies
Days at Greystoke Mahale are spent tracking chimps in the forest, swimming and snorkelling in Lake Tanganyika – home to over 250 species of tropical fish - or sailing in the 40ft dhow.
Day 9 - Depart after breakfast for the boat transfer to the jetty at Mahale Airstrip where you board the scheduled flight to Kilimanjaro. Upon arrival, transfer to your choice of hotel.

Kilimanjaro trekking Marangu Route
The Marangu route is one of the most popular routes to the summit of Kilimanjaro. This could partly be as a result of the fact that the Marangu is the least expensive route, but more so, perhaps the fact that it is possible to do the Marangu route in 5 days, thereby getting to the summit one day earlier.
Lake Eyasi & Ngorongoro Crater
