3 Days Chimpanzee Trekking in KIbale NP


Description

While watching most animals in the wild is exhilarating, the feeling of watching our closest genetic relatives perform organised patterns of behaviour in their own community is often life-changing. This is a safari best suited for enthusiasts who are inclined on tracking chimpanzees and observing them up close in their natural habitat. Kibale National Park houses 13 species of chimpanzees and has the highest number of primates in all of Africa. While the Kibale National Park is known for its chimp tracking, there are quite a few other species of rare primates that belong here. Easy accessibility coupled with good infrastructure and a variety of activities make it an ideal spot for watching the primates in Uganda.
