Visiting the chimpanzees

If your heart beats for primates, then in addition to gorilla tracking, you should also take part in chimpanzee tracking. Although smaller than their massive relatives, the mountain gorillas, chimpanzees are known for their intelligence and social behavior, which share many similarities with human communities.

Watching them interact, play and communicate in their natural habitats is an unforgettable experience. Chimpanzee tracking is available in various parts of Uganda and Rwanda, including the Kibale Forest National Park in Uganda and the Nyungwe Forest National Park in Rwanda.

Similar to gorilla tracking, you will be accompanied by experienced guides who will guide you safely through the jungle and help you find the chimpanzees. As unique and exciting as the encounter is, it also requires respect and sensitivity towards these sensitive animals. It is important to follow the rules of conduct so that the chimpanzees are not disturbed.
