Kibale Forest

WHY VISIT KIBALE NATIONAL PARK

Not only do we think Kibale is one of the most beautiful parks in Uganda, dotted with beautiful crater lakes against a backdrop of the Rwenzori Mountains, but it is also the best place in Uganda for some thrilling chimpanzee trekking. The birding here is also superb with over 330 species recorded in the park, along with the dazzling colours from the clouds of butterflies that follow you around. 

  • Stand in awe as a troop of 60 plus chimps scramble through the treetops
  • Visit the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary for several localised bird species
  • Explore a number of the spectacular crater lakes in the area
  • Take a butterfly walk through the park – Uganda has over 1000 species.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT KIBALE NATIONAL PARK

It’s not just the chimpanzees that make Kibale so appealing – it is home to a remarkable 13 primate species, including the much localised red colobus and L'Hoest's monkey. Many of the self-guided trails offer a network of shady paths, filled with butterflies of all shapes and sizes. The elusive forest elephant also moves seasonally through the park, but more regularly seen species include the giant forest hog and a number of smaller antelope species.

BEYOND THE ORDINARY
