Mahale Mountains National Park allows visitors to track chimps on foot. The chimpanzees are totally wild, but absolutely accessible. The habituated chimpanzees are easily tracked by the skilled guides and trackers, and most visitors are guaranteed to see them during forest hikes. The walking can be long, but is not over-strenuous. The chimps ignore the intrusion and you will achieve an intimate insight into their daily life, where the mood varies from the Zen-like calm of family life to sexual politics and the high-tension power struggles of the dominant males.
