Mahale Chimpanzees
Photographs of chimpanzees in the habituated 'M-troop', in the forest at Mahale, eastern Tanzania. These were taken during a wonderful 4-day stay at the Mahale Greystokes camp, in October 2008. It was a privilege to walk with the guides in the close presence of this large group of wild chimpanzees and see them in their natural habitat.The troop has been studied by Japanese researchers for many years now, so that the social heirarchy is well-understood. Most of the anilmals have been named by the researchers..
