Accomodations Around Gombe Streams National Park

 

Gombe is the smallest of Tanzania's national parks: a fragile strip of chimpanzee habitat straddling the steep slopes and river valleys that hem in the sandy northern shore of Lake Tanganyika. Its chimpanzees – habituated to human visitors – were made famous by the pioneering work of Jane Goodall, who in 1960 founded a behavioural research program that now stands as the longest-running study of its kind in the world. The matriarch Fifi, the last surviving member of the original community, only three-years old when Goodall first set foot in Gombe, is still regularly seen by visitors.

Gombe Forest Lodge

Location: Beautifully situated on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, Gombe Forest Lodge has been designed with every comfort in mind. The construction of the camp has been done by using environment friendly methods and materials.
Accommodation: The camp’s spacious tents are shaded by huge mango trees, just beside the lakeshore, and each tent features an en-suite bathroom, hot and cold water and a writing desk.
Facilities: The dining area is situated just a couple of steps from the beach. The sunsets over the mountains of Congo are unbeatable, and once night falls fishermen’s lanterns light up the across the lake, mirroring the stars above.
Evenings are spent sitting around a campfire on the beach, enjoying sundowners.
Activities: Chimpanzee tracking, swimming at the beach, fishing, snorkeling and hiking to two spectacular waterfalls – Kakombe, an easy 30 minute walk away and Mkenke, a one hour climb for the more energetic
