Today, we explore Kibale’s icon – the Common Chimpanzees! On top of Chimpanzees, Kibale National Park is also home to other 12 primate species including the Grey checked mangabey, Vervet monkey, Black & white colobus, Blue Monkey, Galago, potto among others – something that has earned it a dub as the primate capital of the world.
The Chimpanzee trekking starts at 8 am and lasts 2 – 5 hours traversing the lush forest of Kibale which is also home to 351 tree species and 375 bird species including the Kibale ground thrush that is endemic and the popular green breasted pitta.
You spend one hour with Chimpanzees viewing them as they feed, play, and socialize. Retire from the activity and embark on the drive back to Kampala / Entebbe.
