The mammalian fauna of Mahale can be loosely classified into three types on the basis of their habitat
preferences. The existence of all three types in a single area is unusual and is one of Mahale’s defining
characteristics, resulting from the complex mosaic of eco-zones found in the park.

A total of 82 species of mammals have now been recorded in Mahale Mountains National Park, which is about 70–80% of the projected total. Of the large mammals, only a handful remain to be found. The latter include greater kudu, southern or mountain reedbuck, and Harvey’s duiker. Some smaller mammals that have not yet been recorded but that almost certainly occur in Mahale include the marsh mongoose, Atilax paludinosus and Smith’s red rock hare, Pronolagus rupestris. By far the greatest number of unrecorded mammals will be bats, rodents and insectivores. Accumulation of new mammal records for the park will probably level out at around 115–120 species.

The distribution of chimpanzees extends from western Africa (Senegal) to central and eastern Africa (Congo, Uganda, Tanzania). West Tanzania represents the most easterly extent of this distribution and it is home to the ‘eastern’ or ‘bald-headed’ subspecies, Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii. The other two sub-species are Pan troglodytes verus and Pan troglodytes.
