Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Gombe Stream National Park, nestled along the shores of Lake Tanganyika in western Tanzania, is renowned as the site of Jane Goodall’s groundbreaking chimpanzee research. Established in 1968, this small but biodiverse park covers an area of just 52 square kilometers, yet it holds significant ecological importance. The lush tropical forest of Gombe provides a haven for a variety of wildlife species, but it is best known for its population of habituated chimpanzees.


The park’s fame stems from the pioneering work of primatologist Jane Goodall, who began her study of wild chimpanzees in Gombe in the 1960s. Goodall’s research revolutionized our understanding of these fascinating creatures, revealing their complex social structures, tool-making abilities, and capacity for emotions. Today, visitors to Gombe Stream National Park have the rare opportunity to observe chimpanzees in their natural habitat, guided by experienced park rangers who facilitate responsible and sustainable wildlife viewing experiences.

Beyond chimpanzees, Gombe Stream National Park is home to a diverse array of flora and fauna. Its forested slopes teem with other primates such as olive baboons, red colobus monkeys, and vervet monkeys. The park also boasts over 200 bird species, including the colorful palm-nut vulture and African fish eagle, making it a paradise for birdwatchers. Visitors can explore the park’s network of trails, winding through dense forest and along the lake’s edge, offering glimpses of wildlife and breathtaking views of Lake Tanganyika. With its rich biodiversity and iconic chimpanzee population, Gombe Stream National Park continues to captivate and inspire nature lovers from around the world.
