Stream National Park is the smallest of the national parks,
barely covering 50 sqkm of mountains, along the shores of
it is famous because of the research centre founded by Jane
Goodall for observing the behaviour of chimpanzees and protecting
them since 1960.
Stream National Park is remote and difficult of access,
and so has very few visitors. But it remains a unique place
to encounter the chimpanzees, on a walk in the mountains,
with experimented guides.
from chimpanzees, you will mostly see various kinds of monkeys,
as red colobus, red tail, blue and vervet monkeys. As the
area is heavily forested, there are no predators, which makes
it safe to walk in the park.
place is also good for bird-watchers, especially along the
lake shore with the famous fish-eagle and palmnut vulture.
and how to visit?
best time to see the chimpanzees is during the rainy season
(February to June and November-December), as they do not wander
so far. Nevertheless, the best time for making good photos
are the dry months of July to October and late December, meaning
that you will have to walk longer ways.
