Kibale Forest Holidays

In western Uganda, Kibale Forest is one of the country’s most beautiful parks. Best known for its large and thriving population of habituated chimpanzees, Kibale contains another 12 primate species – the greatest variety and concentration in East Africa – including blue monkey, grey-cheeked mangabey and the nocturnal potto.

Kibale protects lowland tropical rainforest, montane forest and mixed tropical deciduous forest. Among the 300+ bird species within its forests and swamps are African grey parrot, black-billed and great blue turacos, green-breasted pitta and the Kibale Forest thrush.

Guided walking trails focus on tracking one of the habituated groups of chimpanzee, which have been intensively studied here. Chimpanzee tracking generally begins in the early morning, as is the case with gorilla tracking in Bwindi. We recommend a two night stay at this park, which would also enable you to do a walk in Bigodi Swamp, a rewarding site for small wildlife and birds.
