Greystoke Camp Mountains
F&W Favourite

Greystoke Camp

Paradise and Primates

On the eastern shores of Lake Tanganyika

Greystoke Camp lies on a far-flung beach below a huge tropical forest.

The slopes of the Mahale Mountains rise behind Greystoke Camp, home to the world’s largest known population of chimpanzees. The focal point of the camp is the bar and dining area growing up from the sand, loosely modelled on traditional Tongwe architecture.

Your home at Greystoke Mahale is in wildly exotic wooden bandas looking out across the beach. With interiors fashioned from seasoned dhow timber, the six-suites are open-fronted, with adjoining bathrooms. Each banda has an upstairs chill-out deck, designed for the most demanding castaway.

Within hiking distance there is a group of 60 Chimpanzees. Every day you can venture out into the forest to observe them, our closest relatives, as they groom, wrestle and forage across the leafy floor. With no roads for miles and miles, everything is done by foot or boat. As well as a day's chimping, you can kayak along the lakeshore, fish in the lake and have a private barefoot dinner on the beach.
