Getting There



Nestled on the pristine white sands of Lake Tanganyika, at the foothills of the majestic Mahale Mountains, the bandas of Greystoke Mahale promise an unparalleled stay. These six distinct houses, constructed from aged dhows and enveloped in palm tree thatch, harmoniously blend with the landscape, offering guests an immersive experience. The open-fronted design invites nature's chorus, ensuring a refreshing connection to the wild, while providing modern comforts. Inside, each banda boasts spacious beds draped with mosquito nets, an expansive dressing area for those safari ensembles, and well-appointed bathrooms with robust showers. Thoughtful touches, such as the steps carved from old canoes leading to an upper seating nook, infuse an authentic charm. This isn't just accommodation; it's an elegant embrace of barefoot luxury, where the allure of wild Africa meets the solace of home.
