General Information

The main attraction of Gombe Forest Lodge is its location within the Gombe Steam National Park and its chimpanzees, made famous by British pioneering researcher Jane Goodall, who spent many years researching the chimpanzees and who established a chimpanzee research station within the park.

The park also hosts a number of other primates and bird species including vervet monkeys, red colobus monkeys, blue monkeys and olive baboons.

The camp’s spacious tents are set on wooden platforms shaded by huge mango trees found along the lakeshore. Each tent features a writing desk and en-suite facilities with hot and cold running water. The lodge has been designed with every comfort in mind whilst minimizing the disturbance and impact to the environment. There is a limit to 14 guests at a time, ensuring a very personalized experience.

Staff at the lodge are professional, personable and dedicated to ensuring that your stay is an exceptional experience. Highly trained chefs and waiters serve delicious meals and snacks. After an enjoyable day, dinner is served in the dining area close to the beach, gently lit with the twinkling lights of candles.

Chimpanzee trekking is usually undertaken in the morning. The afternoons can be spent doing more chimp trekking, fishing, snorkeling or just relaxing by the shores of the turquoise blue waters of the beautiful Lake Tanganyika.


Gombe Forest Lodge is located in Gombe Steam National Park on Lake Tanganyika in the extreme west of Tanzania.
