About Primate Watching Tours

Since Darwin’s seminal work, mankind has come to realise that we are not necessarily in a class of our own but are in fact rather clever members of the order of primates. That understanding has been strengthened by developments in genetics which show we share almost the same DNA as our “cousins” the lemurs, monkeys and, especially, apes. Our portfolio below shows sample itineraries in which primates are frequently encountered, providing extraordinary experiences usually reserved for the best Attenborough documentaries. Our trips take in the gamut of primate species: from Madagascar’s primitive pro-simian lemurs; through New World monkeys like capuchin, spider and white uakari; to the impressive apes such as orangutans, chimpanzees and mountain gorillas. We are ever-evolving our range of primate options so do please call us for an update and to let us know in which species you are most interested.
