Kibale National Park

The famous Ugandan rainforest with chimpanzees

Kibale National Park in Uganda is one of the famous spots to meet chimpanzees in the wild. These primates are often spotted in this rainforest, and there are frequent interactions with them.

The rainforests of Kibale National Park is chimpanzee habitat, and tourists can come and meet them here. Just like with the mountain gorillas in other parks, you follow a guide into the forests once the trackers have located them.

What does the chimpanzee excursion look like?

They limit the time you can spend with the animals, so you don’t disturb them too much. And if they happen to be on their way to somewhere else, you might not be able see them for very long. But if they’re settled in one spot, you can spend some time to observe them, which is very special.
