from USD$ 750.00

Go chimpanzee trekking at the world renown Gombe Stream National Park (home to the ground breaking research of Jane Goodall). This very special private tour can be arranged for visitors who wish to travel from Bukoba, Kagera to the Gombe Stream National Park.

The only way to travel from this region of Tanzania to the park is by road or private air charter. For convenience, comfort and cost, our tour is based on a journey by private car and driver (8 hour trip each way) to Kigoma, and then private boat into Gombe National Park (2 hours each way), the only way to reach the park.

 

This adventurous journey is worth every minute of your time, when you come face to face with these incredible mammals in one of the few places in the world where chimpanzees can be seen in their natural habitat. Over two days you will trek into the forest to observe these animated primates at play, and marvel at the surrounding landscapes, waterfalls and wildlife of the park - Incredible memories that will stay with you forever.

This price per person is based on 4 people travelling together on the tour and staying in mid range accommodation. We can however tailor this tour to suit any duration, budget and group size.

The Jane Goodall Institute

Dr. Valerie Jane Morris-Goodall (known as Dr Jane Goodall), is an English primatologist, ethologist, conservationist and activist whose 55-year study of chimpanzee social and family life in Gombe Stream National Park  brought her both professional recognition and worldwide renown. Her extensive research into the behaviour of chimpanzees, fundamentally altered scientific thinking about the relationship between humans and other mammals.

 

Dame Goodall founded, and still directs today, the Jane Goodall Institute, which provides ongoing support for field research on wild chimpanzees as well as conservation, development and educational programs. She is active in efforts to advance the power of individuals, particularly our youth, to take informed and compassionate action to improve the environment for all living creatures.
