7 Days Best Tanzania Chimpanzee Trekking

The Highest Mountain in Africa

7 Days Best Tanzania Chimpanzee Trekking

per person

This is the perfect combination of a Tanzania chimpanzee Safari bush and beach retreat.

Travel off the beaten track to one of Tanzania’s most remote destinations and enjoy that feeling of having Africa all to yourself. Katavi National Park is Tanzania’s third largest national park and games drives will include encounters with some of Tanzania’s largest concentrations of hippo, crocodile and buffalo. Visit between May and June to catch migratory birds. Highlights of this safari include game drives, bush lunches or breakfasts and sundowners around a campfire. Add on an optional Night Game Drive or book a private vehicle for a more exclusive safari experience.

With the only lodge in the park, Mbali Mbali allows you to explore the smallest of Tanzania’s national parks. Gombe Stream National Park is a fragile strip of chimpanzee habitat that straddles the steep slopes and river valleys that hem the northern shores of Lake Tanganyika. It’s chimpanzees, habituated to human visitors, were made famous by the pioneering work of Jane Goodall who in the 1960’s founded a behavioral research program that now stands as the longest-running study of its kind in the world.

Kigoma is the largest town on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania. Take some time to explore the hustle and bustle, take in a historical tour and visit Stanley and Livingstone’s meeting place, or learn more about the Kigoma way of life by visiting the local fish markets. You can also pass through the port and catch a glimpse of the MV. Liemba, now a passenger and cargo ferry, which was previously used by the Germans to patrol the lake.

Lifetime experience Nyange Adventures My friends and I had an amazing experience with Nyange Adventures. First we did the Marangu route in six days with the guide Musa, he and his team were wonderful with us. And then we went on a two-day safari, our guide was amazing and gave us an unforgettable adventure. Thank you to the entire Nyange Adventures team.

This is what you want! We had an amazing time with our guide Roger(!) from Nyange Adventures, very experienced and it really felt we were able to take everything out of the trip. The food from our cook Deo(!) was delicious! I would definitely go with Nyange Adventures again a next time, no doubt.

Amazing safari experience We spend 4 days with Nyange Adventures in Serengeti en Ngorogoro Crater and they where incredible! Our driver, Roger, took such good care of us and told us a lot about wildlife and all the animals we saw. He really did his best to show us a lot of animals! Thanks for the great adventure (driving, parks, campsites, information) and good company! Definitely recommend

Amazing experience! The whole experience with Nyange was seamless, from the sales coordinator Amina answering all of our questions for months on end, to the wonderful guides (Antipas and Robert) who pushed us just the right amount to get our group to the summit, to the porters and rest of the crew for doing all the tough work it takes to get 5 people to the top of the mountain. They really take care of everything so that you have the best chance to summit, and we will always be grateful for how they took care of us. We also did a 6 day private safari after the Kili trek (with Rogers), and that was an amazing experience as well. We drove all the way up to North Serengeti and saw all of the Big 5 by the end of the trip. Rogers got some cool pics of a rhino for us through our binoculars on the last day. He also drove us almost 12 hours one day so we could see multiple crossings of the wildebeests. We had a blast, and would definitely go with Nyange again if we came back.

Exceptional Kili climb and safari with Nyange My friends and I had a great experience with Nyange adventures. We did the 7-day Machame route and a 6-day safari directly after (permanent tented camping option) . Even before the trip, Praise Nyange and his office were very helpful in discussing trip options and plans. For our Kili climb, we had great guides in Antipas and Mussa, and an exceptional team of porters/cooks (S/O to Gerald). Our guides checked our blood oxygen levels every night to make sure we were doing OK. The food was amazing, and you could tell that everyone put in their best effort to ensure we had a good time and were able to summit. We rented a portable toilet, which I would highly recommend. Our whole group successfully summited. For the safari, we had an amazing great safari guide in Rogers. He was willing to start our day as early as we were ready (we're early birds), and was willing to go for as late as we wanted. This meant we often had 12 hour days (6am-6pm) to maximize what we saw. Notably, we were able to see all of the big 5, a few cheetahs, and multiple wildebeest river crossings.

5 Day Camping Safari I did the 5 day camping safari with Nyange with two friends. We had one guide, Joshua, and one cook, Ely. Joshua was a phenomenal guide! We were so pleased. He was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, thorough, pleasant, and prompt. He was able to answer every question we had and seemed to have a genuine love and passion for his job. Ely provided delicious meals throughout our trip. We could not have asked for a better guide. We would recommend that if you are joining the camping safari you bring the following items: towel, pillow, headlamp or flashlight, wet wipes (not all the showers were functional), toilet paper, and a sleep sack to put inside the provided sleeping bags. We had all these items as we are frequent campers, but we thought others might benefit from this information. Kelvin, our contact for the safari, was very prompt with his responses and provided answers to all my questions. Overall, I would recommend using Nyange when going on a camping safari. Ask for Joshua!

Amazing safari in Tanzania We went on a 5 day safari in Tarangire, Serengeti en Ngorongoro crater with William as tourguide and Godfrey as chef. We had a really good experience and saw a lot of animals. The guide knew a lot about the different animals and parks. When he didn't remember some information, he looked it up for us and told us about it later. Whenever we wanted to stop to take pictures or to look, he stopped as long as we wanted to. The camping gear was of good quality. The food during the safari was really good!
