Additionally, the trek through Bwindi’s dense forest is an exciting journey, offering opportunities to spot various primate species and a wide array of birdlife. As you track the chimpanzees, you’ll have the chance to observe their social interactions and intriguing behaviors.
After your chimp-tracking experience, return to your lodge for a well-deserved rest. Share stories and photos with fellow travelers and immerse yourself in the serene surroundings.
On the final day of your safari, you’ll be transferred back to Kigali. Then the drive provides an opportunity to reminisce about your extraordinary primate encounters and take in the stunning landscapes of the region.
