Day 2: Chimpanzees trekking and Kivu lake experience
After breakfast at your hotel, it is time to meet our closest relatives, the chimpanzees. The humans and the chimpanzees share 98% of their DNA, making them more exciting to be observed, most especially when they display what we call human behavior. Chimpanzee trekking in Nyungwe forest starts early morning. The tourists spend only 1 hour with the chimpanzees in Nyungwe forest, and get to observe them so closely going through their own lives and see the human like features and behavior that makes them our closest relatives. It’s such a hair rising moment like no other and so memorable.
After trekking, drive to Kibuye, check in at your hotel, have lunch. After lunch, enjoy a boat trip on Kivu lake to nearby islands such as Napoleon Island with its colony of fruit bats and Amahoro Island, etc. Diner and overnight in Kibuye.
