Mahale groove

Its not all about the Chimpanzee’s at Mahale, our staff are the key to a guests experience and we are proud of the guys. Our new waiter Nishda Moshi is a young man from the local village and is a member of the Kitongwe tribe. Nishda is named after the Japanese researcher who first habituated the Chimpanzee’s of Mahale, way back in 1965, and Nishda’s father is still a tracker for the Japanese research team.

Just the other night we where sitting under the stars eating dinner when Nishda suddenly started to dance. It turns out that he once danced in a local group and it seems that at any time he can break out into a traditional dance when he feels the rhythm. If you’re lucky you might get to see Nishda dance as well.
