Location

This safari will take you to explore Kibale, Uganda. Kibale-Fort Portal area is one of Uganda’s most rewarding destinations to explore, as it is home to a total of 70 mammal species. It is located in western Uganda with an area of 795 square kilometers. Its major attraction is the opportunity to track habituated chimpanzees. These delightful apes, more closely related to human beings than any other creature on earth, are simply amazing to watch as they squabble and play in the fruit trees.

This park is also home to another 13 primate species, including the localized red colobus and L'Hoest's monkeys. A network of shady forest trails provide much to delight botanists and butterfly lovers; and birders are thrilled with over 350 species of birds, including the endemic Prirogrine's ground thrush.

Forest Elephants move seasonally into the developed part of the park, while other mammals include buffaloes, giant forest hogs as well as a half a dozen antelope species. Chimpanzee tracking is the main activity in Kibale National Park, but guided walks, day and night, are also conducted and are very popular.
