Together with a professional local safari operator, the Jane Goodall Institute has arranged an extensive tour of Uganda where you will visit some of the most beautiful forests in the country, have an opportunity to see both of the great apes (mountain gorillas and chimpanzees) in the wild, and many other primate species. Along with this, you will see first hand the work that JGI is carrying out Uganda to not only protect the long term survival of chimpanzees, but to ensure Ugandans are given opportunities to develop their country in a sustainable manner.
