Tanzania National Parks >>Gombe National Park

This relatively small (3230 sq km) National Park lies 300 km west of Dar-es-Salaam and is the closest park to the capital.
It is nestled between the Uruguru mountains to the East and the Rift Valley escarpments to the Southwest.


As it is close to the Selous ecosystem and therefor part of it, it benefits from the highest game density of the entire conservation area, while it is easily to access. Although less spectacular regarding Flora and Fauna, the Mikumi national park obtains a good impression of the African animal world and is suitable very well for a short visit. There is a rich variety bird species as well as large numbers of giraffes, buffaloes and elephants and close to the water holes also lions, leopards and hippos.

Furthermore you can see zebras, lions, wild dogs, pythons, hartebeest, wildebeest, elephants, impala, warthog, eland and antelope. Several observation towers enable you to overview the park in its entirety. Mikumi National Park is mostly miombo woodland withgently rolling hills.


Vuma Hill Tented Camp
Vuma Hills Tented Camp, is an easily accessible and attractive camp set in a peaceful location on a rise about 15 minutes from the entrance to Mikumi National Park. “Vuma” translates from Kiswahili to mean “good gossip spread on the blowing wind;” this camp has the right ambiance and peace for you to listen to hear the gossip.

The 16 luxury tents all have a double and single bed, good bathroom, private veranda and each is tastefully decorated in colonial style. The public areas are set around the small swimming pool and with views over the Mkata River flood plains.
The lodges is managed by the Fox family and with their Africa experience they have made this a relaxed, unpretentious camp with a cosy feel.

Gombe Stream Tented Camp

Is close to the park headquarters. This has large Merustyle tents on low wooden platforms, all clustered in a patch of forest beside the shore. You’ll visit the chimps accompanied by travellers staying at the (exceedingly basic) resthouse nearby.


Whilst Gombe offers a more economic way of seeing chimps in the wild, it lacks the atmosphere and, crucially, the expert guiding of Greystoke. It’s best visited as a two- or three-night side-trip from Kigoma, which is reached by air from Dar es Salaam.
