A visit is worth every penny!!! What an adventure. The trek up the mountain was heavy for me (two and a half hours up hill walking) and when I started to think of turning back (what goes up must come down) we saw a family...More

We are lucky to have a resident permit so we only paid half price (50$) but it is rather expensive for what you get (compared with other national parks). off course seeing the chimpansees is a unforgettable experience and you also support the Jane Goodall...More

Gombe Stream National Park is the site of Jane Goodall's decades of chimpanzee research. There are less expensive places to observe chimpanzees, but this was on my bucket list. We took a chartered flight to Kigoma. From Kigoma it's an almost 2 hour boat ride...More
