3 Day Chimp Trekking Kibale Forest National Park

Kibale forest National Park is situated in western Uganda, in the districts of Kamwenge and Kabarole about 5-6 hours’ drive from Entebbe International airport. This lowland tropical rain forest is considered to be one of the few pristine rain forests remaining on the African continent. Kibale National Park has the largest chimpanzee population standing at approximately 1500 individuals and is the best place to trek habituated wild chimpanzees in the whole of Africa.You can enjoy a half day chimpanzee trekking either in the morning or the afternoon or decide to do a whole day chimpanzee habituation experience. Kibale has three habituated communities that can be trekked but in order to reduce on food competition, these communities that are composed of 50-150 individuals tend to break up into smaller parties of 10-20 individuals. They will only rejoin in the evening to make their nest. For those interested in birding, Kibale is one of the few places where you can spot over 350 birds.
