Gombe Stream National Park

Gombe Stream National Park


Covering an area of 52 sq km (20 sq miles), Gombe Stream National Park is Tanzania’s smallest national park and is placed in the fragile strip of land.  The park is most famous for Jane Goodall, who spent many years researching the behaviour of chimpanzees. The research is still going on.

The Highlights Of The Park

  • The features of the park are similar to Mahale Mountain National Park as both of the parks are located on the shore of Lake Tanganyika.
  • Steep valleys, streams and rivers make the trails of Gombe Stream National Park.
  • Gombe is famous for harbouring a good number of chimpanzees.
  • Walking safaris guided by professional and experienced guides can take visitors deep into the forest to observe the primates closely.
  • Besides chimpanzee viewing, the park is also home to Vervet and colobus monkeys, baboons, forest pigs and small antelopes.
  • The chimpanzees are habituated to human behaviour, so visitors can experience a closer view without any worry.
  • Except for, the walking safaris in the forest, swimming and snorkelling in Lake Tanganyika can also be enjoyed.

The Wildlife

Red colobus monkeys, vervet monkeys, beachcomber olive baboons and red tailed monkeys can be seen in a huge number with the major chimpanzee population.

Bushbucks and bush pigs can also be seen strolling in the forest trails.

The Birdlife

Over 200 species of birds are inhabitants of Gombe Stream National Park. The most commonly sighted birds are: fish eagles, palm nut vultures, tropical boubous and trumpeter hornbills.

Birdlife encounter is good all-round the year. But November to April offers the best view due to the presence of migratory birds.

The crystal clear water of Lake Tanganyika harbours 100 different cichlid species.
