Gombe Stream National Park

Gombe Stream National Park

With an area of only 52 km2, Gombe Stream is Tanzania’s smallest national park. Gombe is characterised by vast forest vegetation as well as steep valleys. For those interested in primates, Gombe is a fascinating place – it is the site of the world’s longest-running study of any wild animal population i The conservation fee paid by travellers when visiting this area on a Tanzania safari helps to support and conserve the animals within the Gombe area.

The Gombe Stream was gazetted as a game reserve in 1943. In 1960, the British researcher, Jane Goodall, arrived to begin her study of wild chimpanzees, and in 1968 Gombe was designated as a national park – Goodall’s study is now in its fourth decade.

There are approximately 150 chimps in Gombe. In addition to observing the chimps, visitors can swim in the lake or hike in Gombe’s forest. The national park is also home to olive baboons, red-tailed and vervet monkeys. Birding enthusiasts will be enthralled by the opportunity of capturing memorable photos of some of the over 200 bird species that live in Gombe Stream National Park. Other animals that can be found here include bush pigs, hippos, elephants, 11 species of snakes and hundreds of colourful fish in Lake Tanganyika.

Gombe Stream is located on the eastern shore of Lake Tanganyika, about 20 km north of Kigoma.
