Tour Ref MSA 1708
Tour Highlight: Kigali City / Nyungwe National Park / Kigali City
Today, we drive early in the morning to make use of the day with our cousins in the bush.
We will drive to park headquarters to meet up with the armed ranger and our local guide for a briefing on the program ahead. Nyungwe Forest is haven for adventurous lovers of primates. Chimpanzees love dense forests as opposed to gorillas that come out of the dense forest allowing clear view. You will most likely see them playing high on trees and sometimes coming down to look for food.
Participants must be 15 years of age and above. The duration of the trek depends on the location of the chimps and could be from 30 minutes to 2 hours. After seeing the primates, you are allowed to spend one hour with them to observe and take photos. The maximum trekking group size is 8 persons who will be accompanied by a guide and an armed park ranger. If you so wish, you can hire a porter. During the tour, there are no meals included except some drinking water. You can carry your picnic lunch or snacks from the lodge.
