The Primates of Rwanda

The Primates of Rwanda

$21995 / per person

Join Glenn Mckimmin on this tour into a magical misty wonderland and see the biggest primate of them all. You will stay at some of the most beautiful hotels Rwanda has to offer, you will experience incredible cuisine, every single luxury will be taken care of so that you are energised and ready to capture one of the most unique and spiritual close up encounters with the primates of Rwanda.

There is an element of beauty and serenity in Rwanda. The kindness and warmth of the people, the gorgeous landscape, ravishing wildlife and a feeling of somehow, being in a place that seems so far away from the rest of the world.

Rwanda’s calling card is the Mountain Gorilla – an exquisite ‘gentle giant’ – and to spend one hour with a Mountain Gorilla family that freely inhabits the rainforest terrain is nothing short of magnificent. On this tour you will get 2 hours with the Gorilla’s on 2 seperate treks.

But Rwanda is home to other primates including the more lively and extraverted (great ape) Chimpanzees, who share about 98% of our DNA; and the beautiful and cheeky Golden Monkeys.

Rwanda is committed to conservation, ethical tourism, and empowering local communities through tourism revenues. Their dedication to preserving the country, people, and wildlife makes Rwanda a truly outstanding tourism destination.

The price listed is based on twin share. We offer this tour as a single supplement also at $24995 AUD
