GOMBE STREAM NATIONAL PARK


Overview

Gombe stream is the smallest of Tanzania’s national parks, a thin strip of ancient forest set amidst mountains and steep valleys on the shores of lake Tanganyika. Chimpanzees are Gombe streams main attraction; they are the stars of the world’s chimpanzee community, made famous by the pioneering British researcher Jane Goodall, whose years of constant observation since 1960 have brought to light startiling new facts about mankind’s closest cousins. In all characters Chimps look to be most likely as the human. The majority of mammal primates found in Gombe are chimps and most of them are the forest species and in addition to the famous chimpanzees, visitors could be lucky enough to see blue or red-tail monkeys. Carnivores are rare in the forest, making Gombe the ideal place for a walking safe, or a swim in one of the streams. The wet season is the best season to track the chimpanzees in Gombe that spans from February to June and again from November to December. You can have a greater photo opportunity during the dray months that starts from July to October and January.
