Primarily a chimpanzee sanctuary, this tiny park covers 52 sq km on the shores of Lake Tanganyika between Kigoma and the Burundi border, stretching between the lake shore and the escarpment a little further inland. The park is the site of Jane Goodall’s research station, which was set up in 1960.
It is a beautiful place and the chimps are great fun. A group of them usually come down to the research station every day. But if they don’t the rangers generally know where to find them. You will have a guide from Shizi Safaris too which are mellow, interesting people who will teach and explain to you the chimps lifestyle, history and all interesting facts about the park.
