Gombe Stream National Park

Written by 

Home to Jane Goodall’s pioneering chimpanzee project

“Chimpanzees have given me so much. The long hours spent with them in the forest have enriched my life beyond measure. What I have learned from them has shaped my understanding of human behaviour, of our place in nature.” Jane Goodall

Tanzania’s smallest national park (just 52km2), Gombe Stream rises steeply from the sandy northern shore of Lake Tanganyika to the Rift Valley escarpment. Synonymous with Jane Goodall, whose groundbreaking chimpanzee project started here in 1960, the park is home to around 100 chimps. Aside from chimps, Gombe is home to a troop of exceptionally habituated beachcomber olive baboons. While red-tailed and red colobus monkeys – the latter regularly hunted by chimps – stick to the forest canopy.

There’s also rich picking for birdwatchers, with 200-plus species to look out for.
