On the shores of Lake Tanganyika on a long sandy beach under the Mahale Mountains lies Kungwe Beach Lodge.

10 luxury tented bandas raised on wooden platforms are spaced out along the beach. The tents are huge with en suite shower and toilet room located at the rear.

Solar power is in keeping with the environmentally sound construction of the camp which blends into the forest. Each banda has a large balcony overlooking the beach and lake.

The main dining area is built in the shape of a boat and is “shipwrecked” at one end of the beach. There is a lounge area with a small library and a dining area.

Chimpanzee tracking is the star attraction of Mahale and guided treks into the forest are taken daily.  The length of the tracking depends on the movements of the chimpanzees but there is no limit on time spent observing the chimps. Other primates are often encountered and the forest is also home to leopard and bushpig.

All safaris in the forest are on foot and require a general level of fitness.

There is good bird watching in Mahale and from November to February many migrant birds pass the lake. Other activities include fishing from traditional fishing boats, snorkelling and sailing on the lake.
