Mahale Mountains National Park is regarded as one of the most isolated national parks in the world, and one of the most undiscovered. At 1,613 square kilometres, Mahale is the chain of mountains running for 70 kilometres from north to south with its western slopes dropping into Lake Tanganyika (the worlds longest lake at 673 kilometres & the worlds 2nd deepest at 1,470 metres) in a series of steep ravines & outcrops (highest peak at 2,462 metres). The eastern side of the mountains, however, descend more gently but largely undiscovered onto the plain that extend to Katavi National Park. Mahale Mountains National Park is home to approx. 1,000 wild chimpanzees of which approx. 64 individuals have been habituated; the youngest being a 1 year old, while the oldest being Kalunde (the King-Maker) at 54 years of age.
