Chimpanzee Tracking:
Chimpanzee tracking is the main attraction at Mahale, and is always given a high priority. Tracking usually begins early in the morning, with the Guides usually starting at the area where the Chimpanzees nested the previous night and tracking from there.

In Mahale tracking can take up to four hours. Chimpanzees move in search of fruit, and are never far away if there’s an abundance of fruit nearby.

We normally go into the forest for Chimpanzee tracking in the morning and come back for lunch. In the afternoon there are many options, depending on how energetic you feel. Choose between further Chimpanzee tracking, walking on the beach, swimming, fishing and snorkeling. It is also possible to visit local fishing villages close to the park and get first hand experience of life in a typical African village.

An angler's paradise, Mahale is one of the best locations on Lake Tanganyika for fishing. Due to the effective control along the park's borders, there is an abundance of fish in the area. Most of our tourists have a great catch within hours on the lake. Some of the types of species caught are the Sangara (Nile Perch) and Kuhe (Yellow Belly). Fishing boats are provided at our camp, equipped with the basic gear including rods, reels, line, sinkers, lures and hooks available. Our boatmen are also experienced in the sport.
