  1. Main Attractions:

    Gombe National Park has many attractions, these are the highlights you should not miss:

    • Wildlife Viewing:

    There are plenty of baboons and wildlife around but the main focus of the park is the chimps. Many of Gombe’s 100 plus chimps are well habituated, and though traversing steep hills and valleys can be difficult, if you head out early in the morning sightings are nearly guaranteed. Many other species of primates live in Gombe Stream’s tropical forests such as vervet to colobus monkeys, baboons, forest pigs and small antelopes, in addition to a wide variety of tropical birdlife.

    • Jane’s Station:

    In 1960’s Jane Goodall founded the reserve, carrying out research that shows the unique relationship between man and chimpanzee. Go and see Jane’s old chimp feeding station. The viewpoint from Jane’s peak reveals a stunning view of the entire park, Lake Tanganyika as well as the Kakombe and Mkenke Waterfall.

    • Landscape and Vegetation:

    The landscape, flora, and fauna are fantastic in and around the reserve. Plant life in the park is a blend of grasslands, open woodlands, semi-deciduous forest as well as evergreen forest.

    • Lake Tanganyika:

    Lake Tanganyika is the longest and deepest lake in Africa, which is home to about 350 species of fish, most of them endemic. The lakeshore offers sunbathing and sunset viewing opportunities.
