Kibale Forest National Park


One of the best places in the world to go Chimpanzee tracking


Kibale Forest National Park is located in the western corner of Uganda below the magnificent 'Mountains of the Moon' - Rwenzori Mountain Range. It is made up of verdant green forest, lakes and marshlands that provide a habitat for 13 primate species, 60 species of mammals including elephants, an array of birds and butterflies and plant life. Its biological diversity is unbelievable.

Kibale is one of the best places in the world to go Chimpanzee Tracking with about 500 of these primates spread around the park. The chimp tracking tours leave twice a day with an expert guide who will lead you on a trek through lush rainforest to find your oldest relatives. It is important to note that locating these primates may require a rather strenuous trek through muddy terrain - and once you have found them, the chase may not be over as they may hop from one tree to another across the canopy of the rainforest.

Chimps possess 98% of our DNA and are our closest relatives so you may feel like you are looking at a long lost friend. It is amazing how similar these animals are to us in appearance and genetics - and meeting them makes for a fascinating experience!
