Q I’m an experienced traveller to Africa, and I am looking for something out of the ordinary. What would you suggest?

JENNIFER COLE,WILD FRONTIERS In Tanzania, the isolated Mahale Mountains bordering Lake Tanganyika offer a rare opportunity to spot some of the last remaining wild chimps in Africa. Getting here is all part of the adventure, as is camping on the beautiful lakeshore. Forest walks, kayaking, snorkelling and fishing combine with exhilarating primate trekking. Or how about accompanying legendary guide Peter Comley on a trip to the remote rainforests of Central African Republic? Track western lowland gorillas and encounter elusive bongo antelope and forest elephant. For birding enthusiasts, the chance to spot the extremely rare picathartes is something special. Travel in small fixed-wing planes, 4WD vehicles, pirogues powered by tribesmen and on foot into the wildest parts of the jungle.
