Travelers are allowed to spend a full one hour with the Gorilla’s, take photography and also observe their behaviours but for chimpanzee tracking trackers view the primates all through the forest since they are shy creatures who keep running away from trackers. Good cameras are recommended in order to get nice photo captions since chimps keep shying away from trackers.

It’s too magical to feed your cousins, get to know each other, how they look, move, eat, interact, and how they relate. Due to conservation purposes tourists are required to take some immunization vaccinations as a way of preventing the chimps from being infected by their close relatives –the humans.
