Brief Information of Mahale Mountains national park

This magnificent Tanzania safari destination is located in western Tanzania and lies on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, with Kigoma as the nearest major city. The Mahale Mountains Park has an area of 1613 sq. km and is located in a rural area 130 kilometers north of Mahale. The geography of the park is dominated by the Mahale range.
The Mahale Mountains National Park takes its name from the Mahale Mountains, which were traditionally home to the Batongwe and Holoholo people. When the Mahale Mountains Wildlife Research Center was established in 1979, these people were evicted from the mountains, and the park was established in 1985.
The Mahale Mountains National Park preserves and inhabits a range of animal species, which is why it is a popular Tanzania wildlife tours location. The park’s main inhabitants and attraction are the chimps that live in the park’s montane forests. Yellow baboons, red colobus monkeys, blue monkeys, red tailed monkeys, nocturnal smaller greater galagos, and vervet monkeys are among the other primates and species found in Mahale Mountains Park. Elephants, roan antelopes, buffaloes, giraffes, bush backs, waterbucks, lions, and wild dogs are among the many mammal species.
