Designed with a distinctly adventurous feel, Greystoke sums up the spirit of adventurous travel in Africa. It is probably the most iconic camp on the continent and one of our top three camps anywhere. Sister camp to Katavi National Park’s Chada Camp, a stay at Greystoke goes hand in hand with a stay at Chada – many safari enthusiasts believe this is as good a trip as you can do anywhere. It is certainly an adventurous trip – one that has the potential of being truly life changing.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Well respected as one of Africa’s finest lodges, this camp is nothing short of phenomenal. Lying on a sandy beach on the edge of a truly stunning lake, Greystoke rests at the bottom of Mahale Mountains, home to the finest chimpanzee viewing on the planet.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Greystoke itself is a very cool lodge. The six large bandas are double storey and some of the most unique rooms we know. The main communal area is a huge thatched banda located on the camp’s main beach – meals are often served on the beach, while dinner is always under the stars.
Activities at Mahale are focused around the chimpanzee trekking. However, the camp also offers a wonderful old dhow as well as kayaks to explore Lake Tanganyika. Snorkelling, fishing and swimming are available too.
