Why Kibale Forest National Park?

The 80,000-hectare Kibale Forest Park is not only home to Africa’s highest density & highest diversity of primates – including the endangered chimpanzee, red colobus monkey & L’Hoest’s monkey - but is also one of the last expanses of land in Uganda to boast both lowland & montane forest.

Experience Forest cover, interspersed with patches of grassland & swamp, dominates the northern & central parts of the park on an elevated plateau.

Kibale Forest National Park is linked to the game-rich Queen Elizabeth National Park by a wildlife corridor, where herds of elephants freely roam between both sanctuaries.

Although the biggest drawcard to Kibale Forest is, undoubtedly its primates, the park is also home to a variety of other animals such as African golden cat, serval, leopard, buffalo, duiker & bushpig. Bird watching is also great – there are 370 recorded species found here.

Visitors to Kibale should not leave before they sample a fresh cup of coffee made from the park’s wild Robusta coffee tree.

Activities Kibale Forest National Park offers a range of exciting activities.

These include chimpanzee trekking safaris, hiking, bird watching & strolling along the cultural trails with stops at Batooro & Bakiga villages that are located at the outskirts of the park.

When To Travel Kibale is open for chimpanzee trekking throughout the year.

December to February & June to September are the driest months & are therefore the best times for this activity.

Walking the trails is easier at this time & the overall experience tends to be more enjoyable.
