With no roads for a hundred miles, we follow chimps on forest paths, and ply the crystal waters of a miraculous lake.
Greystoke has one foot in the forest and one in the lake and your days here reflect the mix of both. We can think of nothing better than a gentle hike in the forest up to one of the many waterfalls, before cooling off for a dip in one of the ice-cold rock pools.
As well as the chimps, the forest is home to many other animals, including bushbucks, bushpigs and an incredible array of birds and butterflies. It's also inhabited by nine species of primate.
If you're not feeling so energetic, perhaps after an adrenalin-filled morning of chimping, we'd suggest a late afternoon trip in the dhow. Head south with a cool box and sundowners on board. If you moor near the shoreline you can often see hippos swimming underwater close to the boat. Take a kayak out for a dawn paddle towards the middle of the lake; drink your morning coffee there and enjoy the sunrise coming up over the mountains. Go for sundowners on the old wooden dhow, lazily following the shoreline or just relax on the warm sands of the beach with a drink in hand.
