A charming retreat
- Six open-fronted bandas
- Breathtaking views of Lake Tanganyika and the Mahale Mountains
- A bar, dining area and library
- Chimpanzee tracking, snorkelling, kayaking and private beach dinners
Greystoke Mahale radiates an undeniable air of adventure with its charismatic ‘Robinson Crusoe’ atmosphere. Nestled at the foot of the densely forested Mahale Mountains, which are home to a thriving population of chimpanzees, are six eco-friendly bandas. Each banda is open fronted to offer the very best views of Lake Tanganyika and an upstairs viewing deck provides a tranquil haven after a successful day of chimpanzee viewing. The adjoining bathrooms are accessible by means of raised wooden walkways.
The guest area, casually named ‘The Mess’, is loosely modelled on traditional Tongwe architecture. It consists of a bar, dining area, library and small raised platforms, which have been converted into cosy sitting areas and offer superb views of the Lake. Guests can enjoy a variety of sumptuous menus as well as private dinners by candlelight on the beach. Activities include chimpanzee safaris, snorkelling, kayaking and fishing.
