Additional Information

Gombe Stream National Park is Tanzania’s smallest park but is exceptional for its prolific primate species, including chimpanzees, red colobus, red-tail and blue monkeys. The park’s connection to Jane Goodall has given it worldwide renown. The wild chimpanzee population is at the heart of Jane Goodall’s groundbreaking research. Accessible only by water from the town of Kigoma set on the eastern bank of Lake Tanganyika, the park’s dense forests are also inhabited by a myriad of avian species and offer phenomenal bird watching and walking safaris. Other popular activities include chimp tracking, lakeshore walks, taking in spectacular views from Jane’s Peak and visiting the magnificent Kakombe Waterfall. This short adventure in Western Tanzania can be taken on its own or added to a longer East African itinerary.
