This is perhaps one of the most breath-taking wildlife experiences on earth! A short safari to get up close with the two species of chimpanzee that occur in Africa and the habitat of the Golden Monkeys where adult monkeys frolic in plain view, feeding on bamboo leaves and leaping from perch to perch, and females carry their young, completely comfortable among onlookers.
