Gombe Stream National Park

Situated some 16 km north of Kigoma town, Gombe Stream is the smallest park in Tanzania with an area of 52 sq. km of lands. Commissioned in 1968, Gombe is a narrow strip of a mountainous country bounded to the East by the crest of the Rift Valley escarpment and by Lake Tanganyika.
The beauty of that park is unique; it is a park without roads, where you can walk and experience nature with all your senses. The park's vegetation varies from the evergreen forests of tall trees to open woodlands and grasslands. Common mammals found are forest species, mostly primates including chimpanzees, baboons, blue monkeys, red tailed monkeys and red colobus monkeys.
