This gorilla & chimpanzee tracking trip is an unforgettable experience of meeting two of our closest animal cousins in the natural habitat.
Getting to see gorillas and chimps in the wild is very moving as you get to personally notice and witness all the little quirks and mannerisms of each individual.
In Bwindi, you will have your encounter with the mountain gorillas where you get to look into the red eyes of a silverback. And in Kalinzu, you will meet the chimps and closely watch them freely go about their day.
Besides the primates, you will experience Ugandan culture and directly learn about it in the various places you will pass.
This safari is ideal for someone whose schedule is tight but they have always wanted to personally experience the presence of gorillas and chimpanzees in the wild.
