Primates - Gorilla Safari

Information on primates and gorilla safaris

Natural World Safaris started as the niche gorilla safari specialist World Primate Safaris back in 2005. This expert level of knowledge and expertise of these incredible primates is still exemplified in our favourite holidays today.

Below we have further information on the various primate species and where you can see them, including the mountain gorillas and western lowland gorillas in Africa, the orang-utans of Borneo and lemurs of Madagascar. Over the years we have tailored numerous gorilla safari holidaysorang-utan holidays, chimpanzee tracking safaris and Madagasacar holidays to meet the individual requirements of our clients. Tracking the gorillas on a gorilla safari in their natural habitat however is hard to beat, being a truly up close and personal safari experience.

From each safari sold we donate a percentage to the conservation of primates in a destination of choice. For safaris to see the primates in their natural surroundings please contact us for further information or check out our Primate Safari Selector.
