Rapidly becoming a must-do destination in Uganda, Kibale Forest offers an accessible and enlightening insight into life in a tropical rainforest. Large mammals aren’t so easily seen but the clouds of dazzling butterflies and gorgeous forest birds more than makeup for it, and besides, Kibale is most famous for its primates and it is commonly known as the primates’ capital with about 13 species of primates. The commonest being the Chimpanzees. You have the opportunity to stop by one of the tea plantations and learn how tea is planted, harvested, and proceed. Thereafter, proceed to the park for an overnight.

Day 3: Chimpanzee Trekking Experience

After having breakfast, you will be transferred to the headquarters of the park where you will be briefed by the rangers, and by around 8:00 am the search for the amazing chimpanzees begins. Kibaale Forest is where the greatest variety and highest concentration of primates in East Africa are exceptionally represented and as you track the chimpanzees you will have an opportunity to see other wildlife species such as the rare L’Hoest’s monkey, the Guereza Colobus, Blue monkey, Grey-cheeked mangabey, Red tailed monkey, Olive baboon among others. In the group, the adult males dominate the group and provide protection to the territory against the rest of the males from other territories. The chimps are located by simply listening for their pant-hooting calls, and then heading to the place from which they replied. Here you can observe them as they feed, play as well as socialize with each other. The tracking takes 2-3 hours after which you will have lunch at a local restaurant. In the afternoon you will go for a guided nature walk in the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary. The sanctuary offers great birding opportunities and nature walks. Bigodi is also a rich cultural heritage site where you can mix with the local people to learn about their traditional activities and lifestyles. Alternatively, you can visit the beautiful Crater lakes region for a picturesque view of the breathtaking scenery.

You will start the day with an early morning breakfast and thereafter drive to Bwindi Impenetrable National  in the South Eastern part of Uganda. Check in at the hotel for relaxation and overnight.

Day 5: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

After breakfast with your packed lunch, your guide will drive you to the park headquarters for a briefing about the do’s and don’ts during your gorilla trekking. Your gorilla trekking experience will start immediately after the briefing. This is a memorable and amazing experience watching the Mountain gorillas feed, play around, and also do their day-to-day activities. This activity can take 2 hours or even up to 8 hours since it is dependent on the location and movement of the gorillas. Also, expect to walk long distances in muddy and steep conditions- this will require you to have a walking stick. On meeting the gorillas, you will spend one hour with them as you take photos and observe their subtle social interactions, and remarkable behaviors closely resembling our own. Later, trek back to the park headquarters to pick up your certificates and return back to the lodge.
