2 Days Gombe Stream National Park Chimpanzee Safari from the Tanzania Luxury African Safaris offers you a great opportunity to see chimpanzees, the park’s main attraction. Aside from Chimps there are many other primates, like the blue monkeys, red-tailed monkeys, red colobus and mammals.

As you enjoy your walking safari, you will also encounter several other animals from pythons to baboons, bushbucks, dik-diks, forest pigs, small antelopes among others.

The birdlife is extraordinary, as there is a great crossover of East African grassland birds and West African forest species. A checklist of 200 bird species includes fish eagle, palmnut vulture and Peter’s twinspot etc all of which are frequent around camp.

Gombe Stream is one of Tanzania’s smallest National Parks, located in western Tanzania, 10 miles (20 km) north of Kigoma, the regional capital of western Tanzania.

Gombe Stream National Park is set against the backdrop of the stunning Mahale Mountains. Gombe Stream is Tanzania’s smallest park covering only 52 square kilometers, located on the western border of Tanzania and the Congo, situated on the shores of Lake Tanganyika.

It is a narrow strip of mountainous country bounded in the east by the crest of the eastern Rift Valley escarpment, and in the west by Lake Tanganyika.

Chimpanzees are the main attraction at Gombe Stream. These remarkable mammals, habituated to human visitors, were made famous by the pioneering work of Jane Goodall.

The majority of wildlife to be found at Gombe Stream is primates. In addition to the famous chimpanzees, you may see olive baboons; these have also been researched since the 1960s and are exceptionally habituated to humans.

You may also spot the red-tailed and red colobus monkeys; the latter is regularly hunted by chimps and so they stick to the forest canopy. Leopard and bushbuck are also residents in the dense forest, along with fish eagles and palm-nut vultures, which are often seen flying overhead.

2 Days Gombe Stream National Park Chimpanzee Safari offers a perfect place for a walking safari, allowing you to cool off along the way with a dip in one of the many streams that criss-cross the park. It also is a living laboratory, home to the world’s most studied group of wild chimpanzees.

The Center’s mission is to operate a world-class research station in which the best available methods are used to continue and further develop the long-term primate research projects begun by Dr. Jane Goodall.

The Center’s mission is also to advance basic science, support conservation, and train Tanzanian scientists.

Gombe Stream National Park Tanzania Highlights | What to See and Do

Private Beach

Fishing Excursions

Kayaking: You can choose to have afew hours or full day

Boat Safari: You can take a boating trip for pure leisure, as a sport or even as a safari on Lake Tanganyika

Snorkeling: After a morning of hiking in the Mahale Mountains and viewing the chimpanzees at play, there is nothing more refreshing than jumping into Lake Tanganyika. Snorkeling is a great way to get a look at the ninety species of cichlid that call the lake home.

Chimpanzee Trekking: Gombe Stream is a great place to see chimps up close and personal as many of the family groups are habituated to humans.

With the possible exception of Mahale Mountains National Park, no other park in Africa can offer such a magnificent experience with chimpanzees.

Bird Watching: The Park’s 200-odd bird species range from the iconic fish eagle to the jewel-like Peter’s twinspots that hop tamely around the visitors’ centre.

Birdwatchers will be also richly rewarded; species like Ross’s and Livingston’s Turaco, African and Trumpeter Hornbills, Pied and Giant Kingfishers, Tropical Boubous, White browed Coucal, and Crowned Eagle can be seen.

Forest Walk: Gombe is a mountainous strip bordering the shore of Lake Tanganyika. It is heavily forested making it unsuitable habitat for carnivores and therefore safe for walking safaris.

There are no roads in the park, which allows you to walk and experience nature with all of your senses!
