Visiting Africa’s primates is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding African experiences we organise and a face to face encounter with a mountain gorilla, the world’s largest living primate, is an unforgettable event. These wonderful beasts are one of our nearest relatives, with whom we share over 97% of our DNA.
The lesser primates such as chimpanzees, lemurs, monkeys and baboons are all fascinating and immensely rewarding animals to watch. Their interactions, communications, mobility and intelligence are all readily visible, and proof of our kinship with this amazing family of beautiful animals.
Aardvark Safaris has been planning specialist gorilla tracking and primate safaris for many years. We have significant experience with a variety of species including the mountain gorillas of Uganda and Rwanda, western lowland gorillas in the Republic of Congo, lemurs in Madagascar, chimpanzees in Uganda and Tanzania, gelada baboons in Ethiopia and smaller, lesser known species like the Angola colobus and golden monkey.
