3 Days Congo Lowland Gorillas & Nyungwe Chimpanzee Trekking

On these 3 days Congo Lowland gorillas & Nyungwe chimpanzee trekking safari, expect nothing but an exclusive primate experience.

Nyungwe National Park is one of the four National Parks in Rwanda in East Africa, a home to over 13 unique primate species including the dominant chimpanzees. Kahuzi-Biega National park is an asylum to the rare Eastern Lowland gorillas in Democratic Republic Congo in central Africa.

You will spend a day in each of these destinations; trekking mighty Chimpanzees and the endangered eastern lowland Gorillas respectively.

This trip starts and ends from Kigali international airport, with the safari van, accommodation and meals well-catered for. Everybody on the trip gets a good share of fun and unforgettable experience.

Detailed Congo Lowland Gorillas & Chimpanzee Safari in details

Day 1: Depart to Nyungwe National Park & Afternoon canopy walk

With everyone set for the trip, our company representative will gladly pick you up at either the airport or Kigali city.

You will be briefed on what to expect on the three days adventure, before getting behind the steering wheel on the busy route to Nyungwe national park; one of the most visited parks and a primate capital occupied by more than 13 unique primates.

You will admire the amazing views of rolling hills, lush sweeping vegetation and smiling natives.

On arrival at the park, proceed for lunch, before an interesting canopy walk that reveals more beauty of this national park, variety of birds on the treetops and a few common primates. This day ends with a yummy dinner meal and peaceful sleep at the lodge.

Day 2: Chimpanzee trekking and transfer to Kahuzi-Biega National Park

Today, a reunion with your cousins the chimpanzees follows an early morning cup of Coffee.

You will drive to the park headquarters for briefing, before commencing the trekking session in a territory with over 13 unique primate species co-existing together.

The park rangers will guide you through the forest as you take each step with great expectations of encountering one or more of the chimps feeding, playing and relaxing on the ground or treetops.

Chimpanzee trekking lasts for roughly 1-5 hours, plus a bonus hour offered to you for close observation at these rare creatures.

Chimpanzees are man’s closest relatives sharing about 98.8% of human genes, meaning there are so many attributes you should expect to see so similar to those of humans, like the hours they eat, use of hands and social life.

Afterwards, get back for lunch at the lodge and check out for amazing transfer to eastern Congo based Kahuzi-Biega National Park, following a route marked by flourishing plantations, undulating hills and happy people.

The other much more interesting way of reaching Kahuzi-Biega National park is using a boat cruise.

You will verify and get new documents at the Congo-Rwanda boarder post, before proceeding to your accommodation for dinner and sweet slumber.

Day 3: Eastern Lowland Gorilla Trekking and Departure

Start this 3rd day with a delicious breakfast at the lodge, before heading to the park headquarters for a briefing with the Park rangers who will verify the trekking documents, explain the trekking rules and describe these apes.

Kahuzi – Biega national park is home to the giant eastern lowland gorillas, birds and several other primates.

The briefing session lasts for roughly thirty minutes, followed by the trekking exercise for only about 1-6 hours, plus one more hour for photography and a close view of the apes.

As you search around, expect an encounter with a variety of mammals, primates, reptiles and several bird species.

On locating the apes, concentrate at their feeding style, body appearance and social interactions, before having a lunch break.

Gorillas have over 95% human-like DNA, so don’t be surprised to watch them act as humans.

After this exercise, return to the lodge for lunch, after which you will check out for a rewarding drive to Kigali city or Kigali international airport for your onward flight back home or to another destination.
