2 Days Chimps Trek in Kibale Forest National Park

Day 1: Briefing and Transfer to Kiabale Forest

Briefing on the safari as we drive to Kibale National Park for Chimps
Briefing on the safari before we drive westwards towards Fort Portal to the Kibale Forest National Park (about 5 hours). Traveling on both asphalt and unpaved roads, you pass through traditional Ugandan Villages where you see people at work tending their traditional crops of millet, sorghum, beans and maize. The lush rolling hills of this region provide good “photo opportunities”. As you approach Fort Portal in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains, you enter Uganda’s famous tea plantation region. A carpet of green spreads before you, as far as the eye can see, and seems an unusual contrast to the countryside through which you have just passed. You arrive at Fort Portal, then, continue toward Kibale Forest, one of the great African rainforest research reserves. Years of study by scientists (who have cut a grid through the forest) have habituated many of its animals to human observers. This forest is famed for the variety of primates found here and it is a terrific area for birds. This rural Ugandan town (Fort Portal) is locally famous for its weaving and basketry, and we can spend some time briefly to examine some of this local art.travel-explore-africa-chimpanzee-photo
In the afternoon we visit a nearby forest swamp that is excellent for viewing primates and other forest animals. At the Eastern edge of Kibale forest is Bigodi Wetland sanctuary which is maintained by the local community. You will expect birds like the great Blue turaco, blue monkeys, baboons, otters, mongoose, bush bucks, bush pigs and among others.

Day 2: Chimp Trekking in Kibale Forest

This is the oldest Mahogany Tree Forest in East Africa – and steps have been taken to preserve this most wonderful forest with its tall and majestic trees. The Forest has been under constant threat by loggers out to make a few shillings instead of looking to the future and preserving this magnificent forest for future generations. Budongo Forest will seem like an oasis to you, the quiet being broken by the sounds of birds, primates nearby – very different from a forest in North America or Europe. Certainly a place to come and spend a couple of days in peace with creation.
