Kibale National Park, known for its superb chimpanzee tracking and bird watching, is home to over 60 different mammal species. With the greatest variety and concentration of primates of any forest in East Africa, the 766 sq. km park extends south from Fort Portal all the way to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Dominated by tropical forest, interspersed with patches of grassland and swamp, the park reaches altitudes of 1100-1590 meters. This diverse habitat and climate provides the perfect environment for Kibale’s rich primate populations including nine diurnal primates. Visitors to the park have the opportunity to encounter Vervet, red tail, H’oest and blue monkeys, grey cheeked mangabeys, red and black and white colobus, olive baboon, chimpanzees and a wide variety of birds and other mammals.

Overnight at Chimpundu Lodge/Kibale Forest Camp/Primate Lodge


Drive to National Park Headquarters (approx. 5 minutes) to meet your guides for the day and begin your chimpanzee tracking experience. Experienced guides and trackers will accompany your party on an early morning trek into the forest to view wild chimpanzees as well as several other species of primates in their natural habitat. You will have an opportunity to be within metres of these amusing and very social apes, sharing in their daily lives and experiencing their day-to-day activities. Chimpanzees, our closest cousins, are extremely endangered with only an estimated 5000 remaining in Uganda. Return to the lodge for lunch and complimentary massage. Optional activities available if time permits.

Overnight at Chimpundu Lodge/Kibale Forest Camp/Primate Lodge


  1. Wear long trousers and a long sleeved shirt over the top of a t-shirt.

  3. Day bag with waterproofs, 2-3 liters of water and your packed lunch.
  4. No flash photography is allowed when photographing the chimpanzees.
  5. Includes a boardwalk so it can be slippery if wet, sturdy footwear with a good grip is advisable.

Please note: tracking may be fairly strenuous as the chimpanzees are highly mobile as they search for food throughout the forest. Also, chimpanzees are wild animals and, as such, sightings cannot be guaranteed. However viewing success rates are over 70%.
