Overview

If you can’t afford the lavish cost of mountain-gorilla tracking, then visiting one of the five habituated groups of chimpanzees here is a very worthy substitute, not to mention a far less financially draining one.

Kibale Forest National Park is the best place for chimpanzee trekking in Uganda. There are 13 species of primates that have been recorded in the park, which is the highest number in Uganda. Aside from chimpanzee, several species can usually be found on the primate walks. Birds and butterflies are abundant.
