All our ape watching holidays, wildlife tours and safaris all over the world are listed below:

Apes are our closest cousins in the animal kingdom, they fascinate us with their near human behaviours and looks, they are nearly all highly endangered with some on the brink of extinction and they are among some of the most popular animals people travel around the world to see and Royle Safaris has many options to see many different apes across Africa and Asia.

When people think about apes they usually think about Gorillas, Chimps and Orangutans. Not necessary knowing that thee are 2 species of Gorilla, 2 species of Chimp and 3 species of Orangutan; people also do not always realise that Gibbons are also apes. They are usually referred to as lesser apes, which is a little harsh on them as they are fascinating and highly intelligent animals in their own right.

Gibbons are also a lot more diverse than the ‘great’ apes. There are 18 species of Gibbon currently in the world with many of these critically endangered, some species number in the 10’s and are in extreme danger of extinction. Royle Safaris has trips either dedicated to seeing apes and especially gibbons or general trips which also feature gibbons, that nearly all of these 18 species are possible to see with our range of Ape Watching Tours and specific Gibbon Tours.

Along with gibbons we have a great range of trips to see and spend time with Orangutans on both Borneo and Sumatra as well as Chimps in Uganda and Tanzania and of course one of the most iconic species to see in the wild, Gorillas. Both species of gorillas are possible on our Gorilla Watching Tours, travelling to Uganda, Rwanda, Gabon or Central African Republic we have a range of Gorila Tours to choose from.

So if you are fascinated by ape and primates like we are, then we are sure we have the perfect Ape Watching Tour for you.

All these tours are available on other dates (subject to availability) than the dates listed. Please contact us to arrange a tour on a date which suits you.
