Rwanda primate adventure holidays beckon to those seeking remarkable primate encounters, and Rwanda stands as one of the safest and premier destinations in eastern Africa for such thrilling adventures.
Within Rwanda’s three primate-rich national parks reside various primate species, including the critically endangered mountain gorillas and fascinating chimpanzees.
Located 120 kilometers north of Rwanda’s capital, Kigali, Volcanoes National Park spans 160 square kilometers. Nestled beneath the five volcanic mountains of Muhavura, Gahinga, Sabyinyo, Karisimbi, and Bisoke, this park boasts elevations reaching up to 4,507 meters above sea level.
Volcanoes National Park is home to ten habituated mountain gorilla families, one of which is dedicated to research. Mountain gorilla tourism in Rwanda is available year-round, but due to high demand and limited permits (only 80 available per day), advance booking is essential.

Over the years, Cyamudongo in Rwanda has gained popularity as a prime destination for chimpanzee tracking. Though smaller than Nyungwe Forest, Cyamudongo was once part of the larger Nyungwe Forest, which stretches from Rwanda into Kabira National Park in Burundi.
Nyungwe Forest National Park, situated south of Kigali, covers an expansive 970 square kilometers and is characterized by its lush mountain rainforest. Its breathtaking beauty is unparalleled, making it a must-visit destination for travelers exploring Rwanda.

Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park is home to habituated golden monkeys, an endangered primate species found in the Virunga Massif. Rwanda offers an opportunity for tourists to engage in golden monkey tracking and witness these captivating creatures in their natural habitat.
Nyungwe Forest features well-maintained trails, providing visitors with the chance to encounter various monkey species, including black and white colobus monkeys, L’hoest monkeys, and red-tailed monkeys.
To obtain permits for mountain gorilla and chimpanzee tracking, advanced booking is essential. Permits can be secured through Rwanda Development Board offices in Kigali, the country’s largest city.
Rwanda’s primate safaris are available year-round, but the optimal times are typically during the dry seasons, from June to September and December to February.
