Primate Holidays

We have been selling primate experiences - whether gorilla trekking,chimpanzee tracking or orangutan tours - for over 20 years and such is our knowledge, that over this time we have arranged tours for ITV and BBC film crews, shown CNN journalists the ropes and even been approached by the Ugandan Wildlife Authority to help habituate a group of gorillas (Nkuringo, in case you were wondering). In short, no-one knows primates better than Steppes.

There are few more poignant wildlife encounters in the world than sitting peacefully with a family of mountain gorillas. Encounters with orangutans in the wilds of Borneo, tracking chimpanzees in Uganda or Tanzania or lowland gorillas in the Congo have a similar intensity.  With primates, the line between observer and observed is at its most blurred.

Our expertise and expert contacts in the field allow us to give you the very best experiences and insights into these magical creatures. Alternatively, should you wish to travel in a group, please view our primate Wildlife Group Tours
