Apes are uncannily like humans with their love for staring. They can come up-close to look at you but you shouldn’t mistake it for domesticity as they are quite wild. Actually gorillas, chimpanzees and monkeys are remarkably peaceful and quite harmless unless provoked. They also are social since they live in groups and play with one another.
The mother often carries the young one around till they are old enough to be independent. Experience the rare mountain gorilla, chimpanzees in the wild and various monkey species with Sabili tours. Mountain gorillas, chimpanzees and monkeys are all part of the primate family.
