3 Day Chimp Tracking in Kibale.

The 3 Day Chimp Tracking in Kibale is a reward to the primate lovers because of the concentration of the primates in this dense tropical rain forest. This area had the high percentage of viewing chimpanzees in the wild than any other place in Africa or even the world. It is not only primates but the volcanic activity gives it authentic craters that have lakes and farmland as well as tea estates that make this a unique destination for those that advocate for go green and environmentalists. However, the safari starts and ends in Kampala.

Kibale Forest National Park:

Specifically known for its remarkable chimpanzee population, Kibale Forest allows visitors to go chimpanzee tracking and observe these primates in their natural habitat. It’s an enriching experience to learn about the behavior of these intelligent creatures and witness their interactions. However you will engage in more exciting activities like the Bigodi wetland swamp walk. The Bigodi Swamp Walk is a fascinating eco-tourism activity located near Kibale Forest National Park in Uganda.  Furthermore, it is a community-based initiative that offers visitors a chance to explore the unique wetland ecosystem of Bigodi and encounter its diverse flora and fauna.
