Rwanda Chimpanzee Tracking Safaris

Tour Summary

Nyungwe Forest is at present the best typical place to track chimpanzees in Rwanda. The chimpanzee tracking and terrain is very difficult and you must be of a very good fitness in order to gain the most from this experience. The habituated black and white colobus troop is much easier to view along with a relaxing visit to the visitor centre and the orchid garden.

Available on request
