Some of the main primate safari experiences you can enjoy in Africa include:

Chimpanzee trekking;

While nowhere as mountainous as gorilla trekking, this activity also takes place in rainforest ecosystems and may be enjoyed in a number of nations, with Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda being the most well-liked options.

Chimpanzees, unlike gorillas, can move about a lot when you come across them. and while it can be challenging, trying to keep up with a troop of chimpanzees moving through the woodland is very rewarding. And when you come across them, you’ll instantly recognize something that almost seems human in its reflection.

Top chimpanzee trekking destinations include; Kibale National Park in Uganda, Nyungwe Forest in Rwanda, and Mahale Mountains in Tanzania.

Gelada baboons;

Trekking to view these primates, who are only found in the highlands of the Simien Mountains in northern Ethiopia, is not as difficult as trekking to see chimpanzees or gorillas, but it is still a unique experience in and of itself. The largest primates on land (apart from humans), geladas spend most of their time foraging in mountain meadows.

Lemurs;

The singular island of Madagascar is the only place you should travel if witnessing lemurs in the wild is on your bucket list. The interesting island of Madagascar is home to more than 100 different types of lemurs, so a trip there won’t be disappointing. Lemurs are one of the island’s most distinctive species of fauna, and they are also one of its main draws. Lemur viewing excursions in dense woodland can be strenuous but extremely rewarding.
