Kibale Forest Chimp Trek


Trekking in Kibale Forest National Park

Kibale Forest National Park is home to 13 primate species.

The most popular activity here is a guided forest walk in search of one of the most beloved primate species in the world – the chimpanzee. There are 9 diurnal primates in the forest, including the vervet, red-tailed, L’Hoest’s, blue monkeys, gray-cheeked mangabey, red colobus, black and white colobus, olive baboon and the chimpanzee. Although chimp sightings are not guaranteed, the odds are very good standing at higher than 95%.

While trekking in the verdant forest, you'll be surrounded by bird song and can expect to see at least 5 or 6 other types of primates, most often the gray-cheeked mangabey and red-tailed monkey. The walking is fairly easy due to the maintained trails and reasonably flat terrain.
