Primate Safari Wildlife Tour in Rwanda
This is an 8-day Primate Safari in Rwanda Tour that will take you on a truly unique primate experience, varying from the chimpanzees and on to golden monkeys and gorillas.
It will start with a visit to the Nyungwe Forest National Park, where you will go and hang around with the chimpanzees as they go about their daily routines. You will watch them from the time that their day begins, where they go to forage for food, groom each other, play, and well… even mate.
As part of your Rwandan Primate Safari experience, you will visit the golden monkeys in the Volcanoes National Park. The golden monkeys are habituated, despite being in their natural habitat, and you can get as close as just a couple of inches from them without them fearing. Their daily routine is foraging and playing in the dense vegetation. Being in their presence is an experience on another level.
Lastly, the highlight of this primate safari will be spending time with the mountain gorillas. The gorillas are an endangered species that can only found in the Virunga Mountains shared between Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The trek will lead you up one of the several peaks to where you will spend time with a family of gorillas. You will note just how gentle the massive primates are. They might seem gentle, but do not be misled to believe that they cannot be aggressive. Watch as the giant silverback males lead and protect their families.

- Tracking gorilla families in the Virunga Mountains
