We spent about three hours hiking in this nice forest. The hike was easy and we saw the chimps within an hour. We also saw the colubus monkeys, other monkeys, the great blue turacos and tons of other birds. Robert was our guide and he...More

We had an amazing morning searching and finding the chimps. Our guide was great and we found the chimps within about an hour of walking. It’s an easy place to get to as it’s just off the main road and I imagine you could get...More

We trekked chimps whilst staying nearby in kyambura. The trek was quite easy and not too strenuous, taking about 30 minutes before we found the chimps in the trees. Rachel our guide was a real help, thank you! Memorable experience and hope to visit again!

We found a cheap guesthouse in Katunguru and met a guy called Moses who works as a local operator who had some unclear relation to the guesthouse. He persuaded us to hire him and his car for 120000UGX to get to Kalinzu early in the...More

As a regular TripAdvisor reviewer, this is a rare negative review of a place to stay, as well as of an activity. Our group stayed at the Kalinzu Forest campsite for one-night as part of an overland Intrepid trip. We pitched tents but found that...More
