This was such a good experience - it must depend totally on how lucky you are seeing chimps but we had some excellent sightings. You are allocated a chimp group to follow - but we started out stumbling upon another group who are quite habituated...More

We are keen birders and this is a great area to visit. We did not pay the stupid birding fee of US$30 when you can watch lions for free. Even so we notched up a good score of birds and many of the several species...More

My fiance and I did the all-day chimp habituation experience (CHEX) and had a great time. Things to know: it has to be booked in person in advance through the Uganda Wildlife Authority, so if you're visiting from another country, you'll likely need to ask...More

Our family of four loved trekking with the chimpanzees. One warning: make sure you know the possible limitations of the “habituation” trek vs. the regular trek. We were not adequately briefed (by our tour agency at home) about the differences between these treks and had...More

hi Emma, my visit to Kibale was part of a 10 day package trip. I believe that there are companies in Fort Portal who can book you a visit there.
