Join us for 8 emotional days!

Safari luxury Mahale 8 days: we offer a luxury Safari, in a dream lodge, 8 days (from Tuesday to Tuesday) with a first stop in Arusha at the National Park for an experience of walking safari and canoeing on Lake Momella. Four days will then be dedicated to the Mahale Mountains National Park: an experience in unspoilt nature open to those who wish to walk unusual paths. Birds, monkeys, chimpanzees, small predators and butterflies are the signs of a life that continues unchanged for millions of years.

Come with us for a truly extraordinary experience in an idyllic paradise where the mountains hide chimpanzee communities and whose slopes are white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters of Lake Tanganyika. The park is so isolated that it can happen to be the only visitors present!

We staff will be available for any need from your arrival at the airport to your departure.

For any information do not hesitate to contact us! Below you can find out the detailed program day by day.
