Visiting the chimps in Kibale, I got the distinct feeling, that we are evolutionary very closely related. The big alpha male came down from the trees and sat/lay relaxed on the ground chewing on a straw. I could have done that. Even though I was...More

The morning starts in the dark at 6.30am with an armed guide (Jessica) escorting our small group into the jungle. It can be a little challenging avoiding tree roots along a mostly flat path so bring a mobile phone or torch. Within thirty to forty...More

We visited this national Park for chimpanzee trekking. Beware, the trekking is hard! It is up and down and up and down huge hills and mountains. These are not trails that you will be trekking on. It takes a lot of physical energy and endurance....More

Kibale National Park is beautiful and probably contains numerous birds and other animals. However, since you are loudly trekking with a large number of other tourists and guides through the forest, there is little chance of quietly sneaking up on any of them. Long before...More

This is the best place in Africa to track chimpanzees in there natural habitat. I advice one to do Chimpanzee habituation instead of chimpanzee tracking. With Chimpanzee habituation, one spends the whole day in the forest with these apes unlike tracking where one spends one...More
