Coming face to face with a wild ape in its natural habitat is one of life’s most memorable experiences, with the effort required to reach them making it all the more unforgettable.

Africa is home to four of five Great Apes, harboring the world's richest primate diversity. Encounters with them in the wild take place in only a handful of remote locations, adding an element of adventure to already extraordinary safaris.

The forest-clad Virunga Mountains that straddle the borders of Rwanda, Uganda, and the DRC are a Mountain Gorilla-trekking haven. Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, lying just a short stretch to the North, is home to Mountain Gorillas and a remarkable number of Chimpanzees. In Western Tanzania's Mahale Mountains, a remote and astoundingly beautiful corner of the continent, unparalleled chimp-trekking, dhow trips on Lake Tanganyika, and sundowners on a sandy white beach can be enjoyed. In Madagascar, a country full of unique landscapes, endemic Lemurs abound. In all safari experiences, plenty of small primates, such as Baboons, bush babies, and Vervets, will be seen.
