We spent 2 days here, the first was a nature walk and the second was spent chimp tracking. We spent half an hour trekking through the forest before spotting the first chimp. Then all of a sudden they were in the trees above us throwing food down on us. After a while the chimps came down to the ground so... More

Loved it! Wrote a review under the title 'Kibale Forest Chimp Tracking'. Excellent guides take you into the forest & help you find the chimps. Wear proper trekking gear - pants tucked into socks, hats, backpack with water, etc. It's a wonderful morning!

I am still so exited! We went to see the Shimps in Kibale in December 2013. Newer did I dream, that we would come so close and have so much time with these wild cousins of ours! The guides are really professional, and the goup of shimps, that they know well, is well worth visiting. You get up to 4... More

The whole aim of going on this trip was to see the chimpanzees. This was achieved with remarkable ease. We sighted our first chimpanzees within a couple of minutes of arriving and the excellent guides soon had us viewing the primates at very close quarters - great fun and very pleasing. The chimpanzees got on with their lives as a... More

I had no idea what to expect. Seeing chimpanzees up in trees, then down and making for an area to have their morning snack was amazing. It did take a bit of tracking, but it was an amazing thing to get so close. They tell you to stay 7 meters away. Our guide was actually pushing photographers closer to the... More
