Gombe Stream National Park

Introduction

Gombe Stream National Park is the smallest national park in Tanzania, covering an area of just 52 sq kms. The park is located in the north-western part of the country, 16 kms north of Kigoma.

Gombe Stream is becoming an increasingly popular safari destination as it is one of the few remaining places where Chimpanzees can be found in their natural habitat.

Due to the park being heavily forested, large game animals are not found in this area, but the park is home to a number of different species of monkey including the red colobus, red-tail and blue monkey, grey duiker, bushbuck and bushpig as well numerous species of bird including trumpter hornbills, Roos's turaco, crowed eagle, secretary bird, narrow tailed starling to mention a few.

For access reasons and photography the park is best visited during the dry season, between the months May through to October. However during the rains, February-June and November-mid December, the chimpanzees don't move as far so they are more likely to be seen
