Kigoma town is situated  on the shores of the  world’s longest and  second deepest lake, Lake  Tanganyika. Only 10 km  from Ujiji where journalist  Henry Morton Stanley  found the ailing Dr. David  Livingstone and greeted  him with the immortal 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.
