They have two programs one you track the Chimps and get to spend just one hour with them and the other is the Chimpanzees habituation which is the one that I recommend as you can stay all day with them or tell your guide when you are ready to go. Because they have lots of Chimps we tracked a family... More

Location ok, new road ready soon. Personell professional and friendly, prices reasonable, chimps too hungry to come greet us ( only 4 said hello from hights), but it's always worthwhile to wander in rainforrest three hours on own foot.

Chimp tracking in this park is very well organised. One armed ranger will take not more than 8 trakkers to view the chimp on the ground. Few rangers will go to the park early morning and locate chimp family and inform all rangers on walkie talkie. We spend good one and half hour tracking chimps and saw about 15 chimps... More

The day was non stop as we followed the group of chimpanzees. They were amazing. It was so lovely to be with them all day and watch their every move. Our guide was patient and informative. Will never forget this experience.

Definitely the best chimp viewing forest and I have been to lots. Lots of habituated chimps so you are bound to see several doing different things. People are split into groups of 6 so not too crowded.

It started so quite, we saw couple of chimps up high on the trees then every thing broke lose. The chimps came down and we started to meet them on a very close proximity.. It was super awesome!!! However, I managed to get safely close to many of them and have my first Chimpanzee selfie! :D

What a great National Park. We had our guests from Finland and we had a great stay at Chimps Nest Lodge before heading to the National park for Chimapanzee Tracking. The Park is so good for lovers of wild adventure with a wide range of monkeys, baboons and different bird species in Bigodi

There is so much more to Kibale National Park than just Chimps but, if you are like the majority, they will be the reason you are visiting. I personally found the chimp tracking more enjoyable than the Gorillas we experienced in Bwindi. Something to do with the mischievious nature of chimps perhaps. To get so close to our close cousins... More

Kibale is a very dense rain forest with many types of monkeys. Getting close to a chimpanzee was my lifetime dream and this time it came true. Having walked for over 5 hrs, we found a group of 8 chimps playing. It was a mom and dad playing with kids. The UWA guide taught us a lot about the chimps,... More

Don't go for the trekking - do the full habituation day. On the first day we found the chimps quickly and spent a full day with them. They were all around us. It was totally amazing. On the second day we found chimps but they never came out of the trees and we walked for miles! It was so tough.... More
