Kigoma town is situated on the shores of the world’s longest and second deepest Lake, Lake Tanganyika. Only 10km from Ujiji where journalist Henry Morton Stanley found the ailing Dr. David Livingstone and greeted him with the immoral words ‘’Dr. Livingstone, I presume’’, Kigoma town is the main gateway to the remote Gombe stream and the Mahale mountains national parks in western Tanzania.
