New roads to Mahale National Park in Tanzania
It is delightful to learn that Mahale Mountains National Park will soon open its doors to the world of tourism. Mahale is home to troops of chimpanzees. The wildlife sanctuary is scarcely accessible as it is set deep in the forests that cover the mountains.
Access to the park has, almost exclusively, been by air and marine transport. But Tanzania National Parks (Tanapa) is currently constructing roads that will soon lead tourists into chimpanzee territory.
Mahale Mountains National Park will soon see more visitors of all walks of life from home and abroad. An estimated total of 800 chimpanzees live in the sanctuary but a further, unspecified population forages on the fringes of the mountains. A billion shillings have been pumped into the road project which will also see the installation of several bridges.
