Overview

Join us on a 4-Day Mahale Mountains Budget Chimpanzee Trekking Safari. Nestled in the heart of the Western Tanzanian wilderness, Mahale Mountains National Park stands as a testament to the beauty and biodiversity of this remote region. Established in 1985, this pristine sanctuary spans an impressive 1,613 square kilometers and is renowned as one of the last strongholds for wild chimpanzees in Africa. Located approximately 128 kilometers south of Kigoma town, along the eastern shores of Lake Tanganyika, Mahale Mountains National Park offers a rare opportunity to immerse oneself in the untamed splendor of the African wilderness.

The park's diverse landscape encompasses a mosaic of habitats, including dense forests, rugged mountains, and pristine beaches, creating a haven for a rich variety of plant and animal species. From towering mahogany trees and ancient figs to vibrant orchids and delicate ferns, Mahale's flora is as diverse as it is stunning, providing a lush backdrop for the park's diverse fauna.

At the heart of Mahale Mountains National Park lies its most iconic inhabitants – the chimpanzees. With an estimated population of over 1,000 individuals, Mahale is home to one of the largest communities of wild chimpanzees in the world. Led by experienced guides, visitors to the park have the opportunity to trek through dense forests in search of these fascinating primates, whose close genetic ties to humans make them a truly captivating species to observe.

But the wonders of Mahale extend far beyond its resident chimpanzees. The park is also home to a wealth of other wildlife, including leopards, bushbucks, red colobus monkeys, and over 350 species of birds. As you explore Mahale's diverse habitats, keep your eyes peeled for sightings of these incredible creatures, whose presence adds to the park's allure and mystique.

In addition to its natural wonders, Mahale Mountains National Park is also steeped in cultural heritage, with the land surrounding the park inhabited by the Watongwe and Waholoholo tribes for generations. Visitors to Mahale have the opportunity to interact with these indigenous communities, learning about their traditional way of life and gaining insights into their rich cultural heritage.

At Exodus Safaris, we believe that every safari should be a transformative experience, leaving you with a deeper appreciation for the beauty and diversity of the natural world. Join us on an unforgettable journey to Mahale Mountains National Park and experience the magic of this pristine wilderness for yourself.
