Mahale National Park
The major features of the park are the Mahale mountain chain running from north-west across the middle of the park. Onto the north the park is boarded by Gombe Stream National Park and accommodates about 700 Chimpanzees population inside its boundaries. Yet Gombe stands as a recommendable place to visit these primates as they are more accessible with 5 m. The park covers an area of approximately 1600 square kilometers making it the most remote park in the country lies 120 kilometers south of Kigoma on peninsula that cuts out into Lake Tanganyika.
The vegetation of the Mahale is populated with the Miombo woodland, the narrow forest along the rivers. There are also a variety of other animals, including buffaloes, zebras, roan antelopes, hyena, wild dogs, giraffes, elephants, bush pigs and lions although these are seldom seen on the eastern shrubs of the park. The park can be visited round year but the best time to visit Mahale Mountains National Park is during the dry season as it gets so wet in the rain seasons. It’s also advisable to bring with you jungle boots, rain jacket.
