One of the most accessible of Uganda's major rainforests Kibale National Park is home to some 13 species of primates included the red colobus and L'Hoest's monkeys. The major attraction to this spectacular park however is the opportunity to trek habituated chimps. These apes, which are more closely related to humans than any other living creature are a delight to watch as they have go about their daily lives in the forest. Botanists and butterfly lovers will also enjoy the network of shaded forest trails and with no less than 335 different recorded bird species it is a bird lovers paradise. For those who are extremely fortunate you may get to see the elusive forest elephant. Kibale National Park is also home to other forest dwellers including buffalo, giant forest hog and antelope.

Guest Testimonial

Our three guides made this holiday so memorable. Nishiuma Tomoyo in Tokyo, Emiko Ashida (tea ceremony and kimono dressing) and Satomi Miura in Kyoto were fantastic. Their english, knowledge, friendliness and helpfulness could not be faulted. We are so grateful to them all.
