Primate Tours

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

As more and more people are visiting the orang-utans of Borneo and the gorillas and chimps of Uganda and Rwanda we at Royle Safaris thought we would offer primate lovers the chance of a lifetime to track down and watch the rarest ape in the world. The western hoolock gibbons of Bangladesh are very rarely seen usually but with the help of a trained local tracker and an experienced zoologist you will be sure to find them. As they swing away in the canopy eating figs and calling out across the rainforest you will be lost for words. They are not tracked by locals everyday, nor are they intensely studied like the apes of central and western Africa and unlike the orang-utans of Malaysia they are not fed at stations to get them to come down from the tree tops…all these factors mean that when you spot a gibbon in the wild it is truly wild.

But in addition to the western hoolock gibbons the forests of Bangladesh are home to very rare monkeys like Phraye’s leaf monkey, pig-tailed macaques, capped langurs, rhesus macaques, common langurs and the very special nocturnal slow loris. So with this many primate species around you will be in heaven.

We have recently added a primate tour to Uganda and Rwanda which is exceptionally brilliant if your interested in primates. With a chance of seeing 20% of Africa’s primate species and spending two full days with endangered mountain gorillas and two full days with wild chimps (including 12-13 hours with a fully habituated troop), this tour is one for any wildlife lover especially people with an interest in our elusive cousins!

So have a look at the primate tours we offer and see if one tickles your fancy; but if you do want to see the orang-utans of South-East Asia contact us through the tailor made tours page and we will arrange your dream holiday complete with a zoologist escort to anywhere you want to go to find any primate you want to see!

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.
