Kungwe Luxury Camp is located in Mahale Mountain National Park. An estimated one thousand chimpanzees roam the lush rainforest spanning a chain of dramatic peaks alongside Lake Tanganyika; Mahale Mountains National Park is a sanctuary for these chimpanzee populations.
Kungwe Luxury Beach Lodge sits on a stretch of secluded golden beach, deep in the heart of the African interior. With a dramatic mountain range rising up from behind and crystal clear waters of Lake Tanganyika in front of the lodge, this romantic getaway is the perfect blend of comfort and luxury.
The primary activity in the park is chimpanzee trekking. On a gentle boat safari down the lake you may encounter crocodile, hippo and otter as well as an abundance of birdlife. Test your skills against the local methods of freshwater fishing. Kayaks are available for exploring the lake or you may chose to simply relax on the beach.
In the evening, enjoy a sundowner around a crackling fire whilst the sun slowly dips down over the mountains of the Congo.
