KIBAALE National Park

Uganda’s Kibale equatorial rainforest is an enchanting park full of lakes, grasslands, marshes and forests on the lower slopes of the Rwenzori Mountains in western Uganda. It’s best known for its healthy population of approximately 500 chimpanzees, though it’s also home to twelve other primate species and a few elephant.

Chimpanzee tracking starts at the entrance to the park where you will meet the experienced guides and rangers – all with expert knowledge of Kibale’s flora and fauna. A Kibale Forest safari offers an excellent opportunity to see chimps – though once found keeping up with them can be quite a challenge if they decide to move on through the branches at high speed.
