  1. Hi everyone. I'm just trying to get a sense as to how severe the tse-tse flies, and sandflies, are in Mahale NP. After reading through several trip reports, the tse-tse found on the beach do not seem to be as bad as say, parts of Katavi. Plus there has been no reports of sleeping sickness contracted at Mahale, from what I can find out. Also, given that the accommodation at Mahale is on the beach, how distracting are the sandflies? My wife and I stayed on Mafia Island during our last trip, and the sandfly bites ruined the stay for my wife - she is allergic to anti-histamines, so she couldn't control the itchiness. She had an awful 3 days.
