Day 02

After breakfast enjoy Chimpanzee trek, boat safari, see the Hippos and take a short river cruise. The chimpanzee population in Mahale Mountains National Park is the largest known and due to its size and remoteness, the Chimpanzees flourish. It also the only place where chimpanzees and lions co-exist. Another unusual feature of the park is that it is one of the very few in Africa that must be experienced by foot. There are no roads or other infrastructure within the park boundaries, and the only way in and out of the park is via boat on the lake.
