The Little Beauties of Mahale

10 March 2012

It is selfish indeed to claim that one month at Greystoke is not enough time in Mahale, considering that most visitors stay for three or four days. Still, it is hard to escape the feeling that we are just beginning to scratch the surface of this spectacular forest.

Chimps do steal the show here, without question and with very good reason. It could certainly be argued that they are the keystone species of Mahale Mountains National Park. Protecting their habitat protects myriad other species too.

Steve and Kiri are on the dhow, heading south from the airstrip. Any moment now we'll meet them on the beach to welcome them back home. Lake Tanganyika is exquisite today. Til next time...
