Top 10 affordable safaris in east Africa : Track chimpanzees in Rwanda
Rachel B Doyle and Zoe Flood
The mountain gorillas in the Virungas range get all the attention but Rwanda is home to numerous rare primates, most of which can be found in the staggeringly beautiful Nyungwe Forest national park in the south-west of the country.
The forest is best known for its large troops of chimpanzees but is also prime swinging grounds for L'Hoest's monkeys, Angola colobus, vervet monkeys, and a range of others, along with around 300 bird species.
Best of all, the cost for this whole package, which includes a day of tracking chimpanzees through the mountains, a nature walk, and two nights in a comfortable forest lodge with full board, still costs less than a single ($750) gorilla tracking permit up north.
