The adventure starts with a flight from Dar es Salaam to Mbeya on Friday 18th May 2018. A 4 x 4 vehicle will meet you at the airport and drive you to Lake Shore Lodge.  The 8-hour drive takes you through rural western Tanzania, through the Lwafe Game and Forest Reserve and down the escarpment to Lake Tanganyika.  The pristine wilderness area of Lake Tanganyika is literally at the end of the road.

You have one day to set up and pack your kayak and then we are off, paddling northwards to Mahale Mountains National Park.  You will be required to paddle 30km a day for 5 x days and then on the 6th day we will kayak 50km in order to reach our campsite in Mahale.  Each night we will camp in small bays on the banks of the Lake.  Our support boat will accompany the kayakers carrying all the camping gear and supplies and anyone who is tired of kayaking can always put their kayak onto the support boat and travel onboard to that day’s campsite.  Our traveling chef, Hassani, will be along to prepare delicious meals for the kayakers and waiter Nordrick will be there to ensure that we are always well looked after with ice cold beverages.

We will spend 3 x nights in Mahale in one of the Bandas built in the rain forest.  You will have 2 x opportunities to see the chimps and hike in the spectacular forests of this wild area.

On the 28th May 2018 you will hop onboard our boat and we will take you up to the small airstrip in Mahale and wave you goodbye as you fly first to Kigoma and then onward to Dar es Salaam.
