A chimp tracking experience in the remote Mahale Mountains is high on the bucket list for many adventurers. This itinerary offer chim tracking, trekking, traditional fishing and boating all within a relaxing motor ride from the airstrip. View the chimpanzees with national park rangers in set times and watch their behaviour, so very familiar is so many ways.

DAY 1 ARUSHA — MAHALE

With an early departure from our Arusha accommodation, we transfer to the Arusha airport for the charter flight to Mahale National Park.  Upon arrival at the Mahale airstrip, we meet and camp guides and take a one hour boat trip to the camp. Remote and fabulous! This afternoon, take a bush walk around the camp to discover your new habitat.

The trackers have set off again today, and we will follow shortly once we have word. We are allowed one hour to view the chimps on each day—this is timed and recorded by park rangers who accompany us on the trek. We return to camp today and after lunch and a short rest, we are able to enjoy a short boat ride and learn some traditional fishing techniques, in search the Yellow Belly!
