A friend and I visited Gombe National Park and stayed there for two days from 6th to 8th October 2018.
Accommodation is basic which is common to all base camps I have been so far. There was a water heater in my bedroom, but it...More
We were greeted by a whole Chimp family at the entrance of Gombe Stream, its was amazing, we also saw many baboons and other beautiful animals. In the evening we could watch a film about Jane Godall's first research and time there and talk to...More
Me and my girlfriend arrived at Kigoma to visit Gombe National Park and lake Tanganyika. We didn't have much time there so we planned a day trip to see the famous chimps of Gombe. We stayed in Kigoma and it was difficult to find a...More
We were lucky enough to see chimps twice. We saw a small group from the "G" family along the beach the afternoon we arrived. What luck! And the next day, after a tough hike uphill, we encountered a big troop with chimps from several of...More
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
Gombe Stream NP can be reached by boat from Kigoma. We stayed at Jacobsen's Guesthouse and they helped us with arranging a private boat that could take us to the park. This way Gombe can be visited as a 1 day trip. Alternatively you can...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
The Gombe Stream NP is amazing. The scenery is beautiful, beaches pretty, water pristine and super clean with loads of colourful cichlids (yes you can go snorkelling here and kayaking). We stayed with Mbali Mbali at the Gombe Forest Lodge. Food was good, tents were...More
Our stay here was short but amazing. We saw a group of 37 chimps and watched them play, feed their babies and wander the hills on our first hike. On our second day we went to the waterfall and Jane's Peak and saw the chimps...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
Dear Julie. I am sorry, but i know hardly anything about 'roughing it'. We took a boat from Kigoma. Our driver thought it was safer to take a boat than risk the mud. I Did not stay the night in Gombe. I returned the same day... More
Dear Julie. I am sorry, but i know hardly anything about 'roughing it'. We took a boat from Kigoma. Our driver thought it was safer to take a boat than risk the mud. I Did not stay the night in Gombe. I returned the same day by boat to Kigoma. I stayed at the Hill Top Hotel. That is probably the best hotel in Kigoma.
I have seen tents when we arrived at the lake side gate. There is a big stone building as well with accommodation. It might be only for scientists but you could try contract Gombe park.
