Nyungwe Forest Chimp Trek - 4 Days
4 day Rwanda chimpanzee trekking safari in Nyungwe Forest Reserve.
Noisy and curious, intelligent and social, the chimpanzee is the mammal most closely related to a human than to any other living creature. Chimpanzee share more than 98% of their genetic code with human beings.
The chimpanzee has a thickset body with long arms, short legs and no tail. Much of the body is covered with long black hair, but the face, ears, fingers and toes are bare. They have hands that can grip firmly, allowing them to pick up objects. The discovery that they used "tools" for certain purposes surprised the world.
Chimps live in groups called troops, of some 30 to 80 individuals. These large groups are made up of smaller, very flexible groups of just a few animals, perhaps all females, all males or a mixed group.
Prior to Jane Goodall’s study in Gombe Stream National Park, very little was known about the intelligent and social behaviour of the chimpanzee. Thanks to the ongoing work by the Jane Goodall Institute, more research is being done into the behaviour and conservation of this endangered primate.
