We fly from Kigali to Kigoma. On arrival in Kigoma guests are greeted by an Origins representative and set off for a 90 minute boat ride to Gombe Stream National Park and our camp on the shores of Lake Tanganyika.
1 overnight Mitumba Permanent Tented Camp, Lake Tanganyikal

Days 2,3: Lake Tanganyika
After an early breakfast we begin our search for these agile and highly mobile primates. We start at the area where the Chimpanzees nested the previous night and then track from there onwards. Part of the thrill as you walk in the thick forest tracking the Chimpanzees, is the scenery and sounds of birds, insects, monkeys and other inhabitants of the forest.

We go Chimpanzee tracking each morning and come back for lunch. In the afternoon guests have the option of either going into the forest for another attempt at Chimpanzee tracking or a choice of other activities including walking on the beach, swimming, fishing and Snorkeling. Visits to local fishing villages close to the Park are easily arranged for a first hand experience of a typical African lakeside village.
2 overnights Mitumba Permanent Tented Camp, Lake Tanganyika

Day 4: Depart
We return to Kigoma by boat in time to catch the Origins high speed twin engine charter flight to Nairobi, Kilimanjaro or Dar-es-Salaam.
