Welcome to Gombe National Park

The smallest of Tanzania’s 11 National Parks it is perfect for ‘foot safaris.’ Brought to the world’s attention through primate specialist Dr. Jane Goodall in 1960 which is believed to be the longest-running study of primates in the world.

Bordering Lake Tanganyika (Africa’s largest lake) the lake feeds the park’s massive evergreen forest. Further North the terrain gives way to drier grasslands.

Teeming with wildlife the park offers another perfect opportunity to indulge in walking safaris and experience ‘Africa of the past!’
