There’s an early start this morning for the transfer to Cyamudongo Forest for an amazing chimpanzee tracking experience.
The reserve is located approximately an 1½ hours away and on arrival you will meet up with your tracker and head out into the forest to spend an hour observing chimpanzees. As our closest living relative chimpanzees share 98.7% DNA, and it’s an exhilarating experience to observe them in the wild. Chimpanzees communicate with pant hoots, screams, and by hitting the tree buttress so you may hear them before you actually see them! The length of the walk and the time taken to find the group will vary, so prepare for a long walk through the forest. The chimpanzees can be seen as they move through the tree canopy, or as they travel along the forest floor.
The afternoon can be spent at leisure or you can take a guided walk through the villages surrounding your lodge.
Overnight Kivu Lodge (or similar).
