Gombe Forest Lodge

In the lush shade of ancient forest trees just off the shores of Lake Tanganyika, lies the small yet intimate Gombe Forest Lodge. It may be the smallest of our lodges but offers complete privacy by catering for just 14 guests at a time.
Gombe Forest Lodge is the only lodge in this national park. Gombe Stream National Park is a thin strip of ancient montane forest bordering the second deepest lake in the world, Lake Tanganyika. This park was made world-famous for the primate studies conducted by pioneering British researcher Jane Goodall.

Prepare yourself for a truly remarkable experience of chimpanzees and nature in one of the most remote and untouched parks in Tanzania.


Set on wooden platforms beneath mango groves on the lakeshore, the seven elegantly furnished luxury tents of Gombe Forest Lodge were designed to have every comfort while minimizing disturbance and impact on the stunning environment. Fill your day with hiking through the trails, observe chimpanzees and birds, or explore the lake with a kayak. Enjoy sundowners around a campfire on the beach to unwind from the day’s adventures.
