This remote park offers some of the greatest visitor attractions, from walking safaris, chimpanzee viewing in their natural habitat, a climb to Mount Nkungwe and snorkeling in Lake Tanganyika. Accessible is only by boat or by air, so it makes it the least accessible and least visited.

Like its northern neighbour Gombe, Mahale National Park is best known for having a wild chimpanzee population of around 800 individuals.
Only accessible by boat or plane, Mahale National Park is a wild frontier that offers brilliant hiking and the opportunity to climb the imposing Mount Nkungwe. The park’s dense undergrowth and mountainous setting make it a park for the physically fit, but it rewards intrepid explorers with a wealth of animal and bird life.
Nearby Lake Tanganyika is a great place for snorkelling, swimming, and fishing as well.
Our Customer Stories
Thank you Tx Safari & Adventures and Exaud for making my safari the most memorable it could be especial taking the 6 students !!! It was Serendipity how it all worked out. Hope to be back next year and I’ll recommend you and Tx company to every one in NOVA SCOTIA.
Our safari was excellent. We had seriously the best safari ever. Saw everything within Tarangire, and the other parks were just icing on the cake. Even saw the python and a fresh kill in Ngorongoro crater,
We did a 8 day trip with our family 4 adults and 2 kids. I started planning late but the response was excellent and put together several itineraries and was very responsive, well informed and helpful.
