Western Tours

Western Tanzania is the least visited part of the country but possibly the most exciting for explorers with a sense of adventure.

The West is most known for its large population of chimpanzees, but offers great opportunities for trekking, boating, bird watching and historical tours as well. Western Tanzania and Gombe national park is where Jane Goodall did her famous studies of chimpanzees over the course of 45 years.  Katavi in turn gives you exciting wildlife on par with the North and South, and Mahale offers spectacular scenery in its rainsforest setting.  

Below we have prepared a few examples of western circuit tours. We are happy to tailor make any tour for you to give you a unique experience well beyond the ordinary safari tours in the national parks!
