In the lush shade of ancient forest trees in Gombe Stream National Park and just off the shores of Lake Tanganyika lies the small yet intimate Gombe Forest Lodge. This small property ensures a personal and exclusive feel by catering for just 14 guests at a time.
Gombe Stream National Park
The major attraction of the Gombe Stream National Park is the chimpanzees, made famous by Jane Goodall in 1960 when she established the area as a chimpanzee research station.
Despite its tiny size of only 52 sq km, it's a magnificent, dense tropical forest rising steeply from Lake Tanganyika in western Tanzania. Although the chimpanzees are the park's star attraction they are not its only one. There are many other species, including baboon, vervet monkey, red colobus monkey, blue monkey and bush babies. Gombe also hosts a wide variety of bird species.
