Mahale, Western Tanzania

Mbali Mbali Mahale


With the dramatic Mahale Mountain range as backdrop, and Lake Tanganyika’s crystal clear waters in the foreground, Mbali Mbali Mahale offers a blend of relaxation and luxury. This secluded and romantic hideaway sits on a stretch of sheltered golden beach in the secluded Mahale National Park in Western Tanzania. If you thoroughly enjoy ‘remote’ – this is a great place to stay!

Each of the ten modern-style beach tents (6 double, 4 twin) has been positioned to offer privacy, and is located right at the edge of the cooling forest canopy of the Mahale Mountains. All rooms are under thatch on raised platforms and have a private deck providing stunning views of Lake Tanganyika and the beach.

The primary activity in Mahale is chimpanzee trekking, carefully monitored so as to reduce human impact on the famous habituated ‘M-Group’ chimps. Take a gentle boat safari on the lake, or opt for a fishing excursion, where you may encounter crocodile, hippo and otter as well as an abundance of birdlife. Kayaks are available for exploring the lake at your leisure, or you may choose to simply stretch out under one of the salas on the beach, while the gentle lapping of the lake lulls you into an afternoon siesta…
