Inspired by the legacy of Dr. Jane Goodall and Dianne Fossey (RIP), Primate Trails leads the way in eco-friendly holidays and eco-tourism tours. It offers dream-come-true adventures to multi-award-winning destinations that offer the healing power of nature in Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. Choose from gorilla trekking, chimp habituation, conservation, hot air balloon tours, boat rides, horseback riding or head off to track tree-climbing lions, go bird watching or go sport fishing on the world’s longest river, the Nile.
We pull together the most cosy eco-lodges, safaris, and conservation projects, which you can chop and change into personal itineraries destined for Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Volcanoes National Park, Virunga National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, and Kibale National Park. All these eco-tourism gems offer a terrific start if you desire an active holiday or are getting involved with life-changing projects, including primary research or forest conservation.



Each trip you will pursue with us is complete with a visit to schools and workshops where local artists sell their handmade crafts and souvenirs. Among the lodges you will stay in are those owned by community trusts. Their profits are used to finance local socioeconomic and conservation initiatives. Such include Buhoma Lodge, Haven Lodge and Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge, among others.


At Primate Trails we are  dedicated to sustainable development; our company provides genuine experiences to  customers while simultaneously funding important conservation efforts that help local communities. Our commitment guarantees impactful involvement, enhancing the bond with ecosystems and animals and making a good difference to the locals and the environment in the places visited.


Our field team exclusively consists of professional drivers and guides who are hand-picked for their love for nature and are passionate about what they do. They plan every detail of the trip to ensure you experience a sense of community, truly stunning surroundings, and also the hospitable nature of those who call Uganda, Rwanda, and the Congo home.

They have a true passion for the role of hosts.


You can take advantage of our healthy relationship with AMREF Flying Doctors to register for the Medivac Insurance Tourist Evacuation Scheme. It is an emergency medical insurance that guarantees travellers access to emergency air evacuation, regardless of wherever they are in East Africa. It covers all emergency evacuation costs, including air ambulances, transport from the airstrip to the hospital, and the first 24 hours in the hospital.
