After an early breakfast, we will make our way to the forest for trekking once again. Walking through forests, up hills, and into valleys, can be tiring and challenging, so come prepared for the trek.

Once we locate a group of chimps, we stop and spend some time with these gentle primates. Watch their world as they groom, feed, and interact with each other in their natural habitat. Coming face-to-face with a group of chimpanzees is one of the most special and rare wildlife encounters on earth!

You will visit different parts of this forest including the waterfalls, Jane’s Peak, and other interesting parts where the chimps are found.

Later, you will descend back to the camp for lunch before spending time at the beautiful beach of Lake Tanganyika.
