Greystoke Mahale epitomises the phrase
'castaway chic'. From the steeply pitched grass roofs to the
fittings made from fishermen's dhows, everything in the six
beachfront bandas (huts) is a pleasure to look at.
You won't mind not having assorted
21st-century gadgetry, as you'll be too busy swimming among the
tiny (harmless) jellyfish in the gin-clear waters of Lake
Tanganyika, performing yoga asanas on the platform of your
banda while a warthog snuffles around below, or watching
the sun go down over cocktails.
And then there's the food - how the chef produces such
extraordinary meals in the middle of nowhere is miraculous.
Wow factor: The chance to
view chimpanzees up close.
