overview

Gombe National Park is a relatively small national park in Tanzania located on the western border of Tanzania and the Congo. Even being the smallest park the park is famous worldwide for through the initial work of Dr. Jane Goodall who came to study the behaviour of chimpanzees. The landscape of the national park varies from valleys to streams and rivers and the vegetation changes from tropical rainforests, alpine bamboo to grasslands.

 The high concentration of chimpanzees is the unique attraction of the area. The most visible other animals of Gombe National Park are also primates including red-tailed and red colobus monkeys. The national park hosts 200-odd bird species range from the iconic fish eagle to the jewel-like Peter.
