On the lakeshore stands our famous jungle-chic lodge

Such a unique and magical place demanded a camp that was equally extraordinary, and so we set our imaginations free.

Settle into forest life

Set in the secrecy of the forest with beach before you, stars above you and the whispers of the wild around you, Greystoke is the perfect spot to celebrate love.

Bedrooms

Stylish and sustainable

At Greystoke, the open A-frame bandas that look onto the beach are made from reclaimed dhows that once sailed the clear waters of Lake Tanganyika... weathered wood adorned with words and tales to tell.

Location, location, location

Each banda is nestled between the gin-clear water of the lake, and the tumbling forests creating our extraordinary castaway lodge.

A sundowner spot like no other

At sundowner o'clock, where would you choose to be? Why, at the edge of the world, lost to the wild western wonders of Mahale Mountains and the cool clear depths of Lake Tanganyika, of course.

Get up close and personal with our genetic cousins at Greystoke Mahale. Perched treehouse-like on the sandy shores of Lake Tanganyika, it’s your base for tracking the fascinating troops of chimps that occupy the emerald Mahale Mountains.

Greystoke built by a thousand boats

At Greystoke Mahale, all the bandas - and the bar - have been built using reclaimed dhows from the lake shore, so each structure has its own quirky touch from timbers that sailed the lake many moons ago.

Space, solitude and the vast infinity of nature

At the very edge of the world, Greystoke has all of this in spades. Here's to our special spot, nestled between Mahale Mountains and Lake Tanganyika, where the forests are festooned with chimps and calm clear waters lap at your feet.
