Located in the western Kigoma Region of Tanzania, Gombe Stream is one of the finest places in Africa to track chimpanzees.

Gombe Stream is famously known as the site of the chimpanzee research project that was established in the 1960s by Jane Goodall, which is still ongoing today.

If you’re planning a Tanzania safari, here are 10 reasons why you should visit Gombe Stream.

Happy Wednesday ! Jane Goodall is a primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, and UN messenger of peace. She is considered to be the leading expert in the world on chimpanzees, and is known for her 55 year study conducted in Tanzania. She observed how our closest animal cousins lived in all its intricacy, the good and the bad. She established the Jane Goodall Institute @janegoodallinst and continues her work and activism to this day. She is a #vegetarian and has been officially knighted. Some words of wisdom from #damejane . “What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” “In many ways the performances of Donald Trump remind me of male chimpanzees and their dominance rituals.” “The greatest danger to our future is apathy.” Thank you Dr. Goodall! Stay active!
