A legendary location among lovers of primates, Greystoke Mahale enjoys an idyllic location for an encounter with some of Africa's last wild chimpanzees. Roughly 1,000 individuals live in Mahale Mountains National Park, some of which have been habituated to humans so that we are able to track them and often can get remarkably close. A permanent research center was established in the region 1965 as an extension of Jane Goodall's work with chimpanzees just north at Gombe Stream. Greystoke Mahale sits on the fringe of the rain forest fronting a secluded beach on sapphire-blue Lake Tanganyika, the deepest of East Africa's rift valley lakes. Since it can only be accessed by boat, it promises guests a rare experience of remote mountain wilderness.
