The most accessible of Uganda’s major rain-forests, Kibale Forest national park is home to a remarkable 13 primate species. This is including the very localized red colobus and L’Hoest’s monkey. Kibale’s major attraction, however, is the opportunity to trek habituated chimps – these delightful apes, more closely related to humans than to any other living creature, are tremendous fun to watch as they squabble and play in fruiting trees. During chimps trekking you head into the forest with a specialized guide and trek up to the point where the chimps are. An option to regular chimps trekking is to spend a full day with the chimps by participating in habituation.
A network of shady forest trails provides much to delight botanists and butterfly lovers, while birders are in for a treat with 335 species recorded including the endemic Prirogrine’s ground thrush. The elusive forest elephant, smaller and hairier than its Savannah counterpart, moves seasonally into the developed part of the park, while other terrestrial mammals include buffalo, giant forest hog and a half dozen antelope species.
Close by Kibale forest national park you find Bigodi wetlands where a walk can be taken to enjoy the nature. In the area is also beautiful crater lakes that can be seen from the car or visited close up during a walk.
