Kibale Forest National Park

Safari Highlights

This morning, we enjoy chimp trekking in Kibale Forest. Kibale Forest is the natural habitat for an amazing 13 primate species, and contains the highest primate density of any area on Earth. We wil have an opportunity to track chimpanzees. Some of the trees are 50 to 60 meters (150 to 180 feet) in height, and provide a majestic canopy for the profusion of rain forest life, including 325 bird species. We will return to the lodge for lunch

After lunch at the lodge, we will set out on a guided crater hike. Choose from following the rim of the crater, on tracks that pass through local community land using for traditional crops like maize and matoke bananas, offering panoramic views of the lake; or take the lakeside option, passing through forest and spotting butterflies, monkeys and ancient volcanic lava tubes as you go. At the end of your walk, there is the invigorating option of wild swimming in the crystal-clear waters of the lake from the lodge’s private swimming pontoon.
