Western Tanzania boasts not only some excellent big game-viewing, including at the world-class Katavi National Park, but some of very finest primate-viewing on the continent. Yes, the mountain gorillas of Uganda and Rwanda may be absent, but there is so much variety and depth in this region for those looking to spend time with our close cousins. From the moving encounters with chimpanzees in Gombe, to the extraordinarily elusive kipunji, this is a tour for those with a penchant for primates.
