Rubondo Island Wild Chimpanzee Experience
Serengeti and northern Tanzania, Tanzania
Explore the beautiful forests of Rubondo Island on foot with your guide. As you move through the forest you will learn about this remarkable habitat and pick up clues which will guide you toward the wild chimpanzee family groups.
The chimpanzees of Rubondo Island offer visitors an incredible opportunity to track and follow our closest relations in thick African bush. The researchers and scientists living on Rubondo have embarked on an ambitious habituation programme, compiling invaluable information, helping us to learn more about our closest relations. These are wild chimpanzees and the habituation process is in its infancy, but results are looking positive. Sightings can not be guaranteed, the emphasis is on learning about the chimps and the habituation process itself. Every day the team spend on the island the better the chance is of guests visiting enjoying a remarkable wild and memorable encounter.
