For those going to Kibale Forest: you cannot leave without having done a chimpanzee trekking, in order to see these animals in their natural habitat. You can track down the chimpanzees during a guided tour in this beautiful rain forest.
12 different primates live in Kibale Forest. You can find animals like the Red Tailed Monkey, Black and With Colobus, Blue Monkey, Grey-cheeked Mangabey, Red Colobus Monkey and the Bush Baby. In the end, the chimpanzees are the most important feature of this forest. Your experienced guide will learn you everything about how they behave, what noises they make and how they move their way through the forest. It’s an extraordinary experience. Besides all the primates, also over 300 kinds of birds and butterflies can spotted!
Of course, we cannot guarantee that you see the chimpanzees, as they are wild animals and they won’t sit down and wait for you at the same spot every single day. However, about 95% of the tourists have seen the chimps! When you don’t find them, you won’t get your money back.
Best time to visit Kibale Forest
Kibale National Park can be visited all year long, but the best times are from June to August and December to February. At these times, the forest trails are drier and easier to walk on.
Tailor made for you!
Do you want more activities in your itinerary, visit a local market or travel in a local train? We include it in your travel program!
Use the knowledge of our local guides, tour leaders and lodge managers. They can advise you on the small off the beaten track places to visit, a special project, a brilliant local restaurant, a woman empowerment or conservation project. Be spontaneous while travelling and find the hidden gems!
You don’t have to worry that we put you in lodges with busloads of tourist, standing in line for the buffets. However, extremely remote, special small-scale (eco) lodges are of course slightly more expensive. In our standard travels we therefore choose the best price-quality lodges, not too main stream but rustic and comfortable accommodations in a beautiful setting.
Whether you want to drive behind the crowds on a game drive (if a lion is spotted you will soon find out via a radio) or just want to find the quiet places, it’s up to you. Talk to your guide continuously and you will have a blast!
