Introduction

Join Busanga Safaris founder Tony McKeith on this itinerary in November 2023 as he takes a small group of  guests to "Meet our Relatives" 

This is the second running of this unusual safari, created to give our guests the very best possible primate experience. We will also visit the only re-habituation program for rhino in Uganda and on the last day we look for Shoebills Storks.

“Watching our closest living relatives, the chimpanzees is like reading the first chapter of human beings adventures in this universe!” 
― Mehmet Murat ildan

Diversity in behaviour brought about by the habitat or geographical features in a home range is the first step in understanding evolution. The differences that can occur no matter how subtle are fascinating to observe in any species but seen in our closest relatives it takes on a whole new level of poignancy and is thought-provoking.

This safari takes you on a unique journey to encounter chimpanzees in three different areas of Uganda, where differing habits and behaviours can be seen.  But this is also simply a chance to get in touch with chimps as a species and to spend extended periods of time in their company as they live, play, love, eat and squabble in the most natural and unfettered way as truly wild primates. We have also included a breathtaking visit to Bwindi in search of Mountain Gorillas.
