Located in one of Tanzania’s smallest National Parks, Gombe Stream National Park is a thin strip of ancient forest mountain bordering Lake Tanganyika. This park was made world-famous for the primate studies conducted by pioneering British researcher Jane Goodall.

Set on wooden platforms beneath mango groves on the lakeshore, the seven elegantly furnished luxury tents of Gombe Forest Lodge were designed to have every comfort while minimizing disturbance and impact on the stunning environment.

Chimpanzee trekking is conducted in the mornings, with afternoon hikes for the especially adventurous. Relax for the rest of the day or hike towards the spectacular waterfalls of Kakombe, an easy thirty-minute walk, or the slightly further Mkenke.

Other attractions include the boisterous olive baboons as well as the vervet, blue and red-tail monkeys. Bushbuck can be found in the forest, while fish eagles and palm-nut vultures are often seen flying overhead.

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, is also available.

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.
