- Gombe Stream National Park is famous as the site of Jane Goodall's groundbreaking investigation into chimpanzee behaviour, the world's longest-running study of a wild animal population.Gombe lies on the eastern shore of Lake Tanganyika and it is not accessible by road or by air. The easiest and cheapest way to visit Gombe is on a daytrip, using a chartered motorboat from Kigoma for the 16km journey to the park and to go on a guided forest walk - although anyone interested in chimpanzees would definitely want to stay a minimum of two days.The park's geography is also stunning. Lined by 13 river valleys, and forming a narrow strip, it encompasses rolling hills of miombo woodland, which rise from the shores of Lake Tanganyika and eventually reach a height of more than 1 500m on the rift escarpment.
