7-Day Combination Chimpanzee and Lowland Gorillas Congo

7-Day Combination Chimpanzee and Lowland Gorillas Congo combining chimpanzee and lowland gorilla experiences in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo) can create a truly immersive and unforgettable wildlife adventure.

Here’s what you can expect from such a combination trip:

Chimpanzee Trekking: Chimpanzee trekking involves venturing into the forests to observe wild chimpanzees in their natural habitat. Like gorilla trekking, this activity is led by experienced guides and park rangers who are knowledgeable about the behavior and whereabouts of the chimpanzee groups. You’ll likely get a chance to witness their social interactions, feeding habits, and maybe even the playful antics of these intelligent primates.

Lowland Gorilla Trekking: Lowland gorilla trekking offers the opportunity to track and observe gorillas in their natural habitat. These treks can take you through dense forests and varying terrain as you search for these magnificent creatures. Just like with chimpanzee trekking, the guidance of skilled guides and park rangers ensures a safe and informative experience.

Wildlife and Biodiversity: Beyond chimpanzees and lowland gorillas, these treks can also expose you to a wide range of other wildlife and plant species that inhabit the same ecosystem. DR Congo’s rainforests are incredibly biodiverse, making these journeys rich with opportunities for wildlife encounters and photography.
