The Gombe stream national park is the smallest park in Tanzania covering only 52 sq Km (about 20 sq miles) and yet very unique for Great Apes. The park is located on the North of Kigoma on the shore of Lake Tanganyika in western Tanzania and accessed by boat from Kigoma town about 16 Km (about 10 miles).

The Chimpanzee doesn't roam as far in the wet season, (February - June, November - Mid December). So may be easier to find because they do not wander so far. Dry months of July - October and late December can however offer better photo opportunities.

Wildlife: Gombe is famous for its chimpanzees, approximately also be seen such as red-colobus, red-tail and blue monkeys. The area is heavily forested, making it an unsuitable habitat for carnivores so the park is safe for walking Safaris.

Birdlife: There are rewarding sightings for bird watchers.
