Western Circuit

About Western Circuit

western Circuit embraces the parks along Lake Tanganyika, the western border of Tanzania with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The vast space in a remote natural location makes the circuit worth a visit. Gombe Stream National Park was made famous by Jane Goodall’s research on its chimpanzee population and subsequent habituation. Mahale Mountains National Park further south, on the shores of the gin-clear waters of Lake Tanganyika, is a more authentic chimpanzee experience and highly recommended. Only a few visitors who travel in Africa ever breach to Katavi National Park, perhaps the most inaccessible and unspoiled wildlife haven to visit on an untouched tour of Tanzania. Fly from Dar Es Salaam to Mpanda and drive to where, deep in virgin territory, spectacular numbers of Cape buffalo, giraffes, antelopes, and zebras dodge predatory lions, leopard, cheetah, hyena, wild dogs and jackals.
