The private life of primates

Surrounding our luxury resort, the protected Nyungwe National Park is home to chimpanzees and monkeys, offering an unforgettable opportunity to see these incredible animals up-close.

 

Trek with chimps

A rare moment

At the break of dawn, your expert guide will lead you into the heart of the jungle, on the trail of chimpanzees. A rustle of leaves, and then, through the branches, you’ll spot a chimpanzee gazing down from the fig trees. Or perhaps you’ll see a troop of tree-dwelling chimps catapulting off through the canopy. Every trek is different, and the jungle’s charismatic chimpanzees are full of surprises.

Meet the monkeys

Watch the world stir at daybreak as you stealthily follow our expert guide on our Monkey Trek experience. Discover one of the few places in the world where L'Hoest's and colobus monkey can be observed in their natural environment.

Monkeys in monochrome

Energetic and sociable, colobus monkeys travel in troops through the treetops of Nyungwe National Park, making them the most common monkey to encounter. If luck favours you, you may witness a pure white baby colobus – their signature black and white coat develops after a few months.
