Back in July we went Chimpanzee trekking when my Mum came to visit. With a 90% chance of seeing the Chimps in any one guided trek I was optimistic if not slightly worried about being in that unlucky 10% who’s forked out $120 for nothing…. Luck was on our side and here are a few images from the excursion. I was overwhelmed by how ‘humanlike’ these animals were. The way this particular chimp moved and the gestures and mannerisms he employed. Chimps and humans share over 98% of their DNA so it is no wonder that these guys were so ‘humanlike’.
