Gombe is the smallest of the Tanzanian national parks, a fragile strip of chimpanzee habitat straddling the steep slopes and river valleys that hem in the sandy northern shoe of Lake Tanganyika. Area was made famous by Dr. Jane Goodall who in 1960 founded a behavioral research program that now stands as the longest study of its kind in the world. The most visible of Gombe's other mammals are also primates, however the park also has 200 or so bird species from fish eagle to the jewel.
