Gombe offers a breath taking, mountainous landscape, dominated by steep ridges and numerous valleys filled with streams.
The chimpanzees, famous by the studies of Jane Goodall, are the most striking element of the park. But you can see other monkeys there: green baboons, red colobus monkeys and red-tailed colobus monkeys…
The park is also home to over two hundred species of birds, ranging from fish eagles to palm vultures.
Chimpanzee trekking usually begins early in the morning, with guides starting from the area where the chimpanzees nested the night before, in order to follow their tracks.
Henry Stanley’s famous ‘Dr Livingstone I presume’ site at Ujiji near Kigoma can also be visited.
