Nkungwe Tented Camp


Private beach and daily chimpanzee tracking

Nkungwe Tented Camp is situated on the shores of the beautiful Lake Tanganyika. Seated here on a long open stretch of beach, drink of choice in-hand. The sands turned golden in the fading light as the sun sets on the far side of the lake behind the distant mountains of the Congo. Memories of your days encounter with mans closest relative, the chimpanzee, still fresh in your mind. You would be forgiven for thinking life doesn't get any better than this, it probably doesn't.

And later when you come down from that plateau of enjoyment, you can stretch out in your comfortable bed. Your luxury tent raised on a wooden platform above the sand with it's own shower and toilet, will not dissapoint. And you can look forward to tommorow, maybe you will go fishing or snorkeling in the morning before you trek back into the jungle in search of the chimps in the afternoon.

Although understandably the main attraction in the Mahale National Park are the chimpanzee's. Lake Tanganyika is well known as one of the best fishing spots in Tanzania. Your guide will lead you to all the best spots and it is indeed a rare occasion to return without a catch. And what better way to celebrate your good fortune than by eating it, the chef will prepare your Nile Perch or Yellow belly as a delicious supper, what could be more rewarding than that?
