Kigoma town is situated on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, the longest and second deepest lake in the world. Only about 6 miles (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 National Park and the Mahale Mountains National Park in western Tanzania.
