Situated on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, Gombe Forest Lodge has been designed with every comfort in mind, whilst minimizing the disturbance and impact on such a stunning environment. This is the only tented camp in the Park, and is used exclusively by our clients. The lodge’s spacious luxury tents set on wooden platforms are shaded by huge mango trees along the lake shore, each tent featuring a writing desk and en-suite facilities with hot and cold running water.
Sitting in the Uvivu chairs outside your tent you can view the deep blue waters of Lake Tanganyika, with the breathtaking sunsets outlining the Congo Mountains, and see the silhouettes of local fishermen setting their lanterns to illuminate the lake like fireflies during the darkest of nights. After a hard day of climbing hills tracking Chimpanzees, Gombe Forest Lodge is the perfect place to wind down, be pampered and re-energised for your next adventure.
Gombe Forest Lodge has 5 double tents and 2 twin tents, built on raised wooden decks, and accommodates a maximum of 14 guests. Each tented bedroom is equipped with an en-suite bathroom, glassed shower, flush toilet, and a sink basin which has cold and hot water available throughout the day.
