The spirit of Nomad Greystoke Mahale

With its charismatic ‘Robinson Crusoe’ atmosphere, Greystoke Mahale radiates an undeniable air of adventure. It is located at the foot of the densely forested Mahale Mountains, home to a thriving population of chimpanzees. A-frame bandas are open-fronted to offer the very best views of Lake Tanganyika and the adjoining bathrooms are accessible by means of raised wooden walkways. An upstairs viewing deck offers a tranquil haven after a rewarding day of chimp viewing.

The guest area, casually named ‘The Mess’, is loosely modelled on traditional Tongwe architecture. It consists of a bar, dining area, library and small raised platforms that have been converted into cosy sitting areas and boast superb views of the Lake. Guests can indulge in a variety of sumptuous dishes and private dinners by candlelight on the beach can be arranged. Adventures include chimpanzee safaris, kayaking and fishing.
