Western Tanzania

Why Go?
Western Tanzania is rough, remote frontier land, with vast trackless expanses, minimal infrastructure and few visitors: not much different to when Stanley found Livingstone here.
The west serves a sense of adventure now extinct in the rest of the country. This is precisely what attracts a trickle of travelers, many of whom plan their itineraries around the schedules of the MV Liemba, which sails down Lake Tanganyika, and the Central Line train, which crosses the country.

Gombe Stream, Jane Goodall’s former stomping grounds, and Mahale Mountains National Parks are two of the world’s best places for chimpanzee encounters, while the vast flood-plains of rarely visited Katavi National Park offer an almost primeval safari experience. Unless you charter a plane as part of a tour, you’ll need plenty of time and patience to travel here. But, for that certain sort of traveler, Tanzania’s west is Tanzania’s best.
