Plain breath-taking is the best way to portray Mahale Mountains National Park, with its clear blue waters and white-sand shorelines backed by lavishly forested mountains taking off straight out of Lake Tanganyika, in addition to a portion of the continents’ most intriguing wildlife. Furthermore, in view of its unrivaled remoteness, visitor numbers are low, adding to the allure.
The rainforest covering Mahale’s western half is the essence, a small part of the Congo that got stranded by the rift that progressed toward becoming Lake Tanganyika. It’s most prominent as a chimpanzee sanctuary, and there are around 900 of our primate relatives living in and around the park, alongside leopards, blue duikers, red-tailed monkeys, red colobus monkeys, giant pangolins and numerous Rift Valley bird species not found somewhere else in Tanzania. There are likewise hippos, crocodiles and otters in the lake, and lions, elephants, buffaloes, and giraffes meandering the savannah of the mountains’ difficult to-reach eastern side.

Excellent Tour with Great Service. I would highly recommend Best Northern Safaris. We went for 7 Days Machame Route. It was a pleasure to have met this team! Recommended...
Great experience with Best Northern Safaris! We did 2 tours (Safari & Climbing) with the team. The work they do is very exhausting and hard, but you always seem them laughing.
Once in a lifetime experience. Best Northern Safaris did an incredible job putting together an amazing safari. A friend of mine recommended them, and I'm so glad they did!
