One of Tanzania’s smallest National Parks, Gombe Stream is a thin strip of ancient forest straddling the steep slopes and river valleys that hem in the sandy northern shore of Lake Tanganyika, about 16 kilometers from Kigoma town. The 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 in 1960 founded a research program that now stands as the longest running study of its kind in the world. The majority of wildlife to be found at Gombe Stream is primates. In addition to the famous chimpanzees, you may see olive baboons, these have also been researched since the 1960s and are exceptionally habituated to humans. You may also spot the red-tailed and red colobus monkeys; the latter is regularly hunted by chimps and so they stick to the forest canopy. Leopard and bushbuck are also residents in the dense forest, along with fish eagles and palm-nut vultures, which are often seen flying overhead.
