Primates in Kibale are so amazing

Views: 20 Visited: Feb 2019 Reviewed: Sep 03, 2019

Find the rewarding tour and attractive destinations in Uganda. We visited Kibale it was good to meet these chimpanzees as soon as we entered the forest, where we found them relaxing.

I have visited this place before more that 10 times and all has been so nice. read more

Memorable Chimpanzee trekking

Views: 280 Visited: Jan 2018 Reviewed: Feb 23, 2018

Before even you enter the jungle, the stunning voice from the various primates welcome you. Everything seen is exciting, but on seeing the chimpanzee, you just don't believe your eyes at the moment as chimpanzee play and do acrobatics from the canopy branches. read more

Nature untouched

Views: 639 Visited: Oct 2015 Reviewed: Mar 18, 2016

Its past 6 months since I was on an 18-day safari through Uganda and Tanzania. I visited many attractions but Kibale Forest in Uganda was the highlight of these 18 days. We were a group of 6, travelled in a comfortable mini bus and were on a tight budget; therefore used lazy camping as our tour operator was able to provide it.

Trekking through Kibale Forest was very interesting (the forest is thick and has many primates). After walking for ... read more

Chimpanzee Tracking in Kibale Forest!

Views: 694 Visited: Aug 2015 Reviewed: Jan 18, 2016

Kibale forest is beautiful and contains a vast number of bird species and many primates of which chimpanzees are the star attraction. There a 24 permits issued daily and one 'community' of habituated chimps which live in friendship groups which vary in size. The 24 guests are split into 3 groups.

If you are questioning visiting the chimps before/after the gorillas, don't, just do it. We enjoyed the chimps as much as we enjoyed the gorillas.... read more

Africa's Finest

Views: 471 Visited: Sep 2015 Reviewed: Sep 23, 2015

As soon as you step into Kibale, you know it's special. A cathedral of nature, with primates as high-priests. We've been living and working in and around the park since 2000, and cannot resist returning year after year. This forest gets into your blood. Some highlights of our 15 years:
-First chimp siting was a spectacular surprise, while out researching other animals in the park. The lone female crossed my path silently. In and out of ... read more

The driver guide was kind to us, very patient, time-conscious. He easily adapted to our requests and culture and was very peaceful, smart and interesting. He was very knowledgeable about the park, made it exciting to track the chimpanzees. read more

The Hidden Pearl of Africa; Chimp Habituation Experience (CHEX)

Views: 1512 Visited: Apr 2013 Reviewed: Jan 15, 2014

After somberly deciding Gorilla Trekking was just way too much money for my mid-twenty year old budget, my travel partner and I decided to check out chimpanzee trekking in Kibale National Park and discovered the option for chimp habituation experience during our research. What's the difference you ask? Chimp trekking allows only one hour with the chimps after hiking in to the forest to find them. With Chimp Habituation, you hike in at dawn (On... read more

Having been in Arusha National Park for trekking, we once again opted to give it a try…of course in a neighboring country.
