Gombe Forest Lodge
is located in the Gombe Stream
area in the western
region of Tanzania
This mid-range camp is the only sensible place to stay in Gombe Stream National Park.
Although Gombe Stream does have slightly lighter restrictions on the amount of time that visitors can spend with the chimps, the reserve is generally considered to be a far less desirable location than Mahale Mountains
further down the lake.
The fact that it is also accessed by boat from Kigoma makes it far less convenient for the majority of our guests, who are able to fly directly between Arusha and Mahale.
We no longer recommend Gombe Stream to our guests, having determined that it will probably be better in the long run to concentrate resources on the hopefully more sustainable Mahale Mountains
to the south.
