Size: 52 sq km (20 sq miles), Tanzania’s smallest park. Location: 16 km (10 miles) north of Kigoma on the shore of Lake Tanganyika in western Tanzania. To do: Chimpanzee trekking; hiking, swimming/snorkeling; visit the site of Henry Stanley’s famous “Dr Livingstone I presume” at Ujiji near Kigoma, and watch the renowned dhow builders at work. Best time: Chimps may be easier to find; better picture opportunities in in the dry season from July to October and late December).

Jane Goodall, one of my heroes, being groomed by Gregoire, a chimp who had been alone in a concrete cage in the Brazzaville zoo since I admire her so - She has truly made a difference in the world.

Primatologist Jane Goodall bends forward as Jou Jou, a chimpanzee, reaches out to her in Brazzaville, Congo. Goodall revolutionized primatology with her 1960s studies at Tanzania’s Gombe Stream Game Reserve, where she observed chimpanzees making and using tools, a landmark discovery in wildlife studies.

Through a Window by Jane Goodall. I enjoyed reading about the chimpanzees and Jane's experience in Gombe. I learned a lot about the nature of chimps; they are a very interesting species!

I thought I would hate this book when I read it for my anthro class, turns out I loved it.

I would absolutely love to go here to watch and study the lives of the chimps there
