Kigoma - Tanzania

Kigoma is the gateway to the most stunning national parks Mahale and Gombe, both well-known for the chimpanzee tracking opportunities. Who doesn’t want to come face-to-face with the chimpanzees, our closest living relative, made famous by Dr Jane Goodall?

But it doesn’t stop there. Lake Tanganyika is like an aquarium full of colourful fish, and with its crystal clear water and stunning white beaches, it makes a superb beach destination. Every evening you can watch the magical sunset over the lake until the millions of stars come out.

Kigoma is also home to the oldest ferry still in operation and you can take a trip down to Mahale NP on the MV Liemba, or cruise all the way to the end point in Zambia. And in nearby sleepy village Ujiji, you can find a memorial at the historical meeting point between Henry Stanley and David Livingstone.

Book your cheap flight to Kigoma with Tripindigo today and soon you will find yourself side by side with the charismatic chimpanzees.
