Mount Mahale Climbing


African Traits ltd offer the unique Experience with chimpanzee in Mount Mahele National. Tracking the chimps of Mahale is a magical experience. The park like its northerly neighbor Gombe is home to some of the Africa’s last remaining wild chimpanzees, a population of roughly 900, they are habituated to human visitors by a Japanese research project founded in the 1960s.

Mahale is located in the Western Tanzania to the South of Kigoma town, it is bordering Lake Tanganyika-the World’s longest, second deepest and least polluted freshwater lake-harbouring an estimated 1000 fish species

The dry season (May -October) is the best period. During this period, chimpanzees are likely to be seen in big groups, the sunshine illuminates the fish in the Lake and the beach is an inviting place to relax. However, Mahele Mountains National Park is accessible all year round. A visit in the rainy season can also be a memorable experience, made remarkable by views of the neighboring country DR Congo across the water and by incredible lightning storms that light up the lake at night. The most attractions in this mountains are, The Chimpanzees, Chain of Mountains (Mahale range), Forest fauna and flora (Angola Columbus, red Columbus, red-tailed and blue monkeys, forest birds, alpine bamboo, montane rain forest etc),Beach along Lake Tanganyika, Local fishermen, Sun set on the Lake horizon
