Gombe National Park is the smallest of Tanzania's National Parks, and Gombe Stream is a thin strip of ancient forest straddling the slopes and valleys that hem in the sandy northern shore of 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, who founded a research program that is the longest running study of its kind in the world. The majority of wildlife found at Gombe Stream is primates. Leopard and bushbuck are also residents in the forest, along with fish eagles and Palm-nut vultures, which are often seen flying overhead. Gombe Stream is the 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.
