Gombe National Park boasts of a thin strip of ancient forest situated in a mountainous region with steep valleys that gracefully cling to the shores of Lake Tanganyika. The park’s primary attraction is the Chimpanzees, which are protected within its boundaries. Tourists visiting Gombe have a chance to go for chimpanzee trekking, hiking, see stunning waterfalls, and take guided walks in the forest and along the lakeshore. As you visit the park, you will be taken on foot through the many steep-sided ridges and valleys to see the chimpanzees. Additionally, the park’s scenery is breathtaking, with the 16 major valleys containing swift waters that flow all year round. It’s interesting to note that the Gombe Chimps are one of the most closely and continuously studied populations since Jane Goodall began her pioneering chimpanzee research in 1960. Furthermore, the park is home to a variety of primates, most of which are forest species, including the famous chimpanzees, red-tail, and blue monkeys. Sharing more than 98 percent of our genes, it’s amazing to observe and feel a connection with our closest animal relative-the chimpanzees.
