Western Tanzania

Western Tanzania is about intense contrasts: from Mahale's chimpanzees and the soft, gin-clear waters of Lake Tanganyika to the mega-herbivores that roam Katavi's savage grasslands.

  • Wild chimpanzee's in the Mahale Mountains
  • One of the wildest places left in Africa: Katavi
  • Rich in wildlife and largely devoid of people
  • Remote, and virtually as we found it 20 years ago

Southern Tanzania

Southern Tanzania is all about getting right out there into the wilderness, to walk, boat, sleep under the stars in a fly camp and feel Africa getting under your skin.

  • Freedom to 'just be' in the heart of Africa
  • Boat, walk, fly camp, fish, drive in Nyerere
  • Complete exclusivity at Kiba Point
  • The best dry season game viewing in Ruaha

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.

Nomad safari guides operate the best camps in the best locations.

Rooms are hidden among massive boulders on a little kopje - each with astonishing views over hundreds of miles of wriggling, giggling, trumpeting, roaring creatures

The Mahale Mountains in western Tanzania are famous for their chimps: there are some 800 of them here, around 75 of them habituated. Guests at this spectacular beach lodge on Lake Tanganyika are likely to spot other primate species, too, including red colobus, red-tailed monkeys and vervets. 

Open from June to end October, it offers a changing wildlife spectacle as the Kakuma River dries up, the plains turn gold, and the remaining pools become increasingly contested by the huge numbers of hippos, while crocs hunker down in riverbank caves.
