The journey to this magical place is part of the experience
From the moment you hop off the plane, you know you're on the edge of the map. From there on in, it's just one surprise after another.
Pelican captures birds eye view of Mahale Mountains
The first ever Pelican's eye view footage of Greystoke Mahale, courtesy of Big Bird, our adopted Great White Pelican who was resident at Greystoke
It's not all about the chimpanzees at Mahale...
but they are certainly the main event. That said, there's also fishing, kayaking, waterfalls, other mammals, butterflies, deep-water swims...and lots more.
The Mahale Mountains play host to one of the largest populations of wild chimpanzees remaining.

It's hard to imagine that anywhere else quite like Mahale exists on this earth.
From the crystal clear lake to the rich forests and special inhabitants, Greystoke occupied an unearthly location. Roland Purcell felt it when he first arrived here and we know how lucky we are to be able to share it with others.
Big Bird: The Sequel
A second installment of footage from our favourite feathered friend who was at Greystoke for a few years. Big Bird learnt to fish under the guiding hand of previous manager Jeff.
