Gombe Forest Lodge

In the lush shade of ancient forest trees just off the shores of Lake Tanganyika, lies the small yet intimate Gombe Forest Lodge. It may be the smallest of our Lodges but offers complete privacy by catering for just 14 guests at a time.

This is a lodge totally at ease with its surroundings with an absolutely delightful atmosphere. The cozy dining area, just a couple of steps off the beach, is built on a wooden platform with an extended outside deck shaded by the Forest. A small library with a selection of books and novels are also available.

After a long day sundowners are served around the fire with the dazzling night sky, which is complemented by the lanterns of hundreds of small wooden fishing boats, bobbing on the lake like a sprawling city.

Gombe Stream National Park

The smallest of Tanzania’s National Parks, Gombe Stream is a thin strip of ancient forest straddling the steep slopes and river valleys that hem in the sandy northern shore of Lake Tanganyika, about 25km’s from Kigoma town.

The chimpanzees are the main attraction at Gombe Stream. These remarkable mammals – habituated to human visitors – were made famous by the pioneering work of Jane Goodall, who in 1960 founded a research program that now stands as the longest running study of its kind in the world.

Activities

Tracking the chimps of Gombe is a magical experience. The guide's eyes pick out last night's nests - shadowy clumps high in a gallery of trees crowding the sky. Scraps of half-eaten fruit and fresh dung become valuable clues, leading deeper into the forest.

Whilst you spend the morning Chimpanzee trekking, afternoons are determined only by how energetic you feel. Swimming in the crystal clear waters of the lake, snorkeling or simply relaxing on the beach. There are two spectacular waterfalls in the area, Kakombe, an easy half hour walk and Mkenke, a little further for the more adventurous.
