Mahale National Park is a protected area located in western Tanzania, along the shores of Lake Tanganyika. It was established in 1985 and covers an area of 1,613 square kilometers.

The park is known for its population of chimpanzees, which are habituated to human presence and can be observed by visitors.

Mahale is one of the few places in Africa where chimpanzees still live in their natural habitat, and the park is considered to be one of the best places in the world for chimpanzee viewing.

In addition to chimpanzees, Mahale National Park is home to a variety of other wildlife, including leopards, bushbucks, red colobus monkeys, and a wide variety of bird species. Visitors to the park can go on guided hikes to see the chimpanzees and other wildlife, and can also go fishing and swimming in Lake Tanganyika.

Mahale National Park is a remote and isolated area, and getting there can be challenging. Visitors typically arrive by small plane or boat, and accommodations within the park are limited to a few basic campsites and lodges. Despite the challenges, Mahale is a unique and unforgettable destination for those interested in wildlife and wilderness adventures.
