Primates

Sensitive and memorable close encounters with our nearest relatives

Primate Wildlife Holidays

“There is more meaning and mutual understanding in exchanging a glance with a gorilla than with any other animal I know,” said Sir David Attenborough after his legendary encounter with a family of mountain gorillas during the filming of his iconic show, Life on Earth. Indeed, primates, be they gorillas, orang-utans or chimpanzees, have a special place in the wildlife litany as they share so many of our traits. “Their sight, their hearing, their sense of smell are so similar to ours that they see the world in much the same way as we do. We live in the same sort of social groups with largely permanent family relationships,” he continued.

Although finding them can be hard – you may find yourself struggling through a high-altitude jungle or in a sweltering rainforest, and they are increasingly rare in the wild – nothing takes away the visceral excitement of a close primate encounter. Join one of our primate wildlife trips and experience it for yourself.
