3 days tour overview
3 Days Gombe Chimps Trekking is a beautiful and unique adventure as it is among the few places in the world where chimpanzee can be seen in their natural habitat. Till this time there are no roads established to Gombe National Park so visitors can only reach the park by boat. Among the attractions for Gombe Stream National Park is the Chimpanzees, beautiful landscapes and the Kakombe waterfalls. Each day you will trek into the forest to observe these animated primates at play.
Trekking Safaris take visitors deep into the forest to observe and sit with the extraordinary primates - an incredible experience and one that is the highlight of many visitors’ trips to Africa. Besides chimpanzee viewing, many other species of primates live in Gombe Stream’s tropical forests. Vervet and colobus monkeys, baboons, forest pigs and small antelopes inhabit the natural forest, in addition to a wide variety of tropical birdlife.
