Accommodation

During the safari, you will be staying in accommodations provided by Arrive Africa Safaris. The options are Primate Lodge or Chimpanzee Guest House.

Program

Day 1: Kampala - Kibale National Park

After having a morning cup of coffee, you’ll be transferred to the beautiful town of Fort Portal located in the foot hills of Mountains of the Moon. As you drive to Kibale, you will enjoy scenic views of banana plantations and coffee plantations. You will have lunch in Fort Portal town before proceeding to Kibale. After that, you will relax, have dinner, and stay overnight at Primate Lodge or the budget Chimpanzee Guest House.

Day 2: Kibale National Park

Chimpanzee trekking safari and Bigodi guided walk are the safari highlights of the day. After having a morning briefing and breakfast, you will start your tracking experience in the tropical rainforest to search for the wild chimpanzees, red-tailed monkeys, black-and-white colobus monkeys, and many others. Visitors trekking the chimpanzees should know that the park is not a zoo, but rather a tropical rain forest, and animal sightings depend on several factors such as time of the day, fruits availability, weather, and how quiet the visitor group is.

After lunch, you will take a guided nature walk to Bigodi swamp located at the eastern edge of the park, an initiative under the surrounding communities of Kibale. Bigodi swamp is famous to tourists because of its rich variety of bird species and primates like the red tailored monkeys, black and white colobus, and gray-cheeked mangabeys. Alternatively, you may take a community walk to the two tribes living near the park (Bakiga and Batooro). You will stay overnight at the luxury Primate Lodge or Chimpanzee Guest House.

Day 3: Kibale Forest National Park / Kampala

After a relaxed breakfast, you will drive to Kampala. End of safari.

Location

Kibale National Park stands at an altitude of 1.590 meters above the sea level. The lowest point in the park is 1.100 meters on the floor of the Albertine Rift valley to the south. The park contains some 350 distinct species of trees, some of which rise to over 55 meters and are over 200 years old. Kibale’s varied altitude supports wet tropical forests on the Fort Portal plateau, woodland, and savanna on the rift valley floor.

Kibale is one of Africa’s major research sites. While many researchers focus on the chimpanzees and other primates found in the park, others investigate Kibale’s ecosystems, wild pigs, and fish species among other topics.

Kibale National Park has the loveliest and most deviated tropical forest in Uganda. This forest cover, interspersed with grassland patches and swamps, dominates the northern and central parts of the park. Kibale National Park houses over 70 mammal species, where 13 of the species are primates including chimpanzees. It also contains over 375 species of birds.

Kibale National Park touches Queen Elizabeth National Park to the south to create a 180 kilometers-long corridor for wildlife between Ishasha, the remote southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park and Sebitoli, which is located at the north of Kibale National Park. The Kibale-Fort Portal area is one of Uganda’s most rewarding destinations to explore. The park is also located near the Rwenzori Mountains, Semuliki National Park, and Semliki Wildlife Reserve.
