Chimpanzees Monkeys

Chimpanzees Monkeys

For primate viewing, Tanzania provides great diversity. It is home to the famous chimp park - Gombe Stream National Park, the less well known Mahale Mountains National Park, and the Udzungwa Mountains National Park. Gombe and Mahale are two of the few locations where chimpanzees may be observed in the wild and Udzungwa has the highest primate diversity of any National Park in East Africa.

Gombe Stream and Mahale Mountains are only usually available as luxury options, and bookings are subject to availability however we have also created an itinerary to visit the parks on a more reasonable budget. We offer 4 to 8 day chimpanzee viewing packages flying in and out to Dar es Salaam. The accommodation is in excellent lodges in the parks.

The Udzungwa Mountains has 4 species of monkey that are easy to see - the Udzungwa red colobus, Sanje created Mangeby, Black and while colobus and BLue monkey. Often, several species can be seen from the restaurant at Udzungwa Forest Camp Hondo Hondo.


  • We had a really great vacation on the Southern Circuit in Tanzania and wonderfully facilitated by our driver/guide Salim who was really first class - a great representative of Wild Things.

  • All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.
