Coverage: Gombe Stream National Park was named after Gombe River. Covering an area of 52 square kilometers, Gombe Stream National Park is the smallest park in Tanzania. It is located about 24 kilometers from Kigoma town and north of Mahale Forest National Park.  Though it is close to town, can only be reached by boat.
Ecology: The park is made up of narrow mountain strip of land about 16 kilometers long and 5 kilometers wide on the shore of Lake Tanganyika. From the lake shore steep slopes rises up to form the Rift Valley's escapement
The Fame:  Gombe Stream National Park is synonymous with Jane Goodall, a British researcher who dedicates her life to study primates in this area. The park has the most studied primates in the world, having been studied for over 40 years. Dr. Jane Goodall arrived in Gombe Stream National park (PDF) in the summer of 1960. She was sent by Louis Leaky to study behaviors of primate and their social relations. Since then she has been involved in ongoing research and observation of the chimpanzees and baboons in Gombe Stream. She has managed to bring the world's attention about chimpanzee, through various television documentaries of her work in Gombe. Today it is the longest running study of an individual wild animal population in the world.
Vegetation and wildlife: The dominating vegetation in this park include the open deciduous woodland on the upper slopes, gallery forests on the valleys and lower slopes. This type of vegetation is unique in Tanzania and has been supporting a large number of Chimpanzee, Baboons, and bird species. Other species seen here are Colobus, blue and red tail monkeys. A well-trained guide mostly help visitors to track chimps in the deep forest. The slopes, which reach the lake shore, are full of birds, butterflies and primates.
Kakombe Fall: It is a beautiful place in the park to take pictures and watching baboon.
Safari: done by boat from Kigoma and on foot within the park.
