Day 2: Chimpanzee tracking
After an early morning breakfast, you will be transferred to the Chimpanzee tracking information office for a pre-briefing by the ranger guide who will then lead you into the rain forest where you will spend most of the morning in search of chimpanzees. These primates are very mobile and viewing them is unpredictable but a forest walk is an enriching activity that starts at 8.00 am taking about 3 hours. This forest is home to a large number of chimpanzees and other primates including Lhoestes, Red-colobus, Blues, Redtailed, grey cheeked mangabeys, birds, and butterflies. The guide will provide detailed explanations on not only primates, but also on all the forest’s fauna and flora.
