Primate Tracking in Rwanda

Primate tracking in Rwanda is by far the reason as to why wildlife junkies have a connection with Rwanda. Beyond the gorillas that made Rwanda famous, there are a number of wildlife primates like Chimpanzees, Black-and-white colobus monkeys, and the endangered Golden Monkey. Chimpanzee groups live high in the canopy of Nyungwe Forest National Park, and catching your first glimpse of one crashing through the forest after hiking into their territory is nothing short of astonishing. The black-and-white colobus live in Nyungwe as well, and these resplendent, long-haired creatures are every wildlife photographer’s dream. Finally, like their neighbors the gorillas, the Golden monkey can be found in very few places outside of Volcanoes National Park, and their rich colors, energetic demeanour, and sizeable troupes of up to 30 individuals are truly a sight to behold. The gorillas could be your reason to go to Rwanda but the primate tracking in Rwanda is worth a try because the experience of seeing these endangered primates is memorable.

These cousins to humans can be found and tracked in Nyungwe National Forest. A beautiful guided hike through the forest will lead you to these fascinating creatures where you can watch them play and interact up close.

Chimpanzee tracking can be done year-round in Nyungwe Forest, rain or shine, and while it is never guaranteed that you will see them, sightings are very common and guides are skillful in tracking them. The experience differs from gorilla tracking as the chimps are running around, so the sightings are a bit more sporadic and rushed, but worthwhile nonetheless.

There are three reception centers for Nyungwe National Park in Kitabi, Uwinka and Gisakura where tourists may meet their guides. Vehicles are not provided so it is best to arrange transportation ahead of time.
