Active Habituation Walks
Chimpanzee Trekking

In 2014, a Congolese team trained by Frankfurt Zoological Society began habituating a group of chimpanzees living in the forests around Virunga's park headquarters in Rumangabo. Guests can join this team on their daily visits to the chimpanzees. The day begins when a group of local trackers leave their camp at 4:30 am to locate where the chimpanzees spent the previous night. Trekkers set out at 6:00 am to join the trackers and view the chimpanzees. Groups are limited to 4 people and time with the chimpanzees is restricted to one hour.
