About This Accommodation
Greystoke Mahale is located in the Mahale Mountain National Park on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in Western Tanzania. With the largest remaining chimpanzee population in the world and countless other species of wildlife, this is a truly special place for animal lovers. You’ll feel as if you’re in Tarzan’s lost world of lush mountains and crystal clear pools and waterfalls.
Greystoke Mahale is nestled into the greenery on the shores of the lake; it is both romantic and inspiring. Open-fronted thatch and wood structures are positioned overlooking the beach with views of the lake from the terraces and upstairs lounges. The rustic interiors are fashioned using dhow timber.
After flying into the Mahale Airstrip you are transferred by dhow to Greystoke – a 90-minute trip. We love Greystoke for its remoteness, but this can also be a disadvantage. It’s expensive to access and can be hard to incorporate into an itinerary. We like to use it as part of the Southwest circuit, combining Mahale with properties in Selous, Ruaha, and Katavi. This is a year round-destination, except during the rainy months of April and May.
