Gombe Stream National Park

Gombe, designated as a game reserve in 1943, was upgraded into a national park status in 1968. The park is located 16 km north of Kigoma town on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in western Tanzania.

Gombe gained its popularity after the research of Dr Jane Good all which is believed to be the longest running study of primates in the world.
