2 Days Chimpanzee Tracking in Kibale National Park


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.


Itinerary

  • Day 1: Transfer from Kampala to Kibale Forest National Park, Bigodi Swamp Walk

    You will be picked up around 7: 00 am from your Hotel in Kampala by our Guide who will brief you about your tour and then depart for Kibale Forest National Park which will take around five and a half hours of drive.

    Post Lunch you will be taken for Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary walk. This is a guided swamp walk that takes you closer seeing primates mostly monkeys, birds and butterflies. The wetland is a bird paradise with about 138 species and is best known for being home to the Great Blue Turaco.

    This is a 2½ - 3 hour walk and is a must for bird lovers. The walk is almost as popular as the Kibale Forest Walk. You will need good walking shoes since part of the walk is sometimes muddy. Hopefully you will spot the elusive Sitatunga antelope and the Shoebill Stork. This is nothing to be missed. You will meet some of the primates here, even a chimpanzee at times. Other primate species include the black-and-white colobus, grey-cheeked mangabey, red-tailed, l’Hoest’s and blue monkeys, and olive baboons. Also, Bushbucks and mongooses and many more can also be found here. There is also an abundance of butterflies. Bigodi Sanctuary is located outside the park in Magombe Swamp.
