Follow in the footsteps of primatologist Jane Goodall on this immersive safari tracking the chimpanzees of western Tanzania. Head to the shores of Lake Tanganyika where you will explore the remote rainforests of Mahale Mountains National Park, home to one of the largest populations of habituated chimpanzees in Africa. Spend time observing these fascinating primates in their natural habitat before travelling to Gombe Stream, the smallest national park in Tanzania and home to Jane Goodall’s world-renowned research centre. Established in 1965, the ground-breaking research on chimpanzee behaviour conducted at this centre is still ongoing, and has been a key factor in protecting the chimps that call this forest home.
