Primate Lodge Kibale Offers a range of options to accommodate all our guests. Our most recent addition, the brand new 9 luxury cottages of a superior design are bound to blow your heart away. Far more spacious and airy, with luxurious bathrooms, really huge glass windows and full size glass paneled sliding doors- they let in a lot of natural light and affording 180 degree views of the beautiful rainforest surroundings from your bed.

We stayed two nights in a deluxe room which we absolutely loved. We felt like we were right in the heart of the jungle! I loved the style of the room which is made from natural products, with a high ceiling and massive bathroom which felt so private as all the rooms are set far apart. When you arrive, you are allocated a personal attendant for your stay - our lady was very hard working and so cute. She even insisted on cleaning our boots after the chimp walk - they came back better than new! We did the loop walk around the lodge several times, but were not fortunate enough to see any primates or elephants - however other guests said they were luckier and spotted black faced colobus monkeys and vervet monkeys. The lodge is walking distance to the start of the chimp tracking headquarters which is also very convenient. I highly recommend this lodge for stays in the Kibale National Park.

Friendly and welcoming staff. Spacious cottages nestled in wooded surroundings. Multiple species of monkeys playing in the trees around the compound. A Grey Baboon looking to share your food. Very accommodating to all food issues - vegetarian and gluten free no problem. Chimpanzee trek just down the road. Even entertainment provided before dinner one evening by a local youth group. Enjoy!

Whislt the service and food were acceptable, the lodge itself was tired and not very special. After staying at other lodges in Uganda it felt very old fashioned and althuogh enjoyable was not memorable.

The lodge was lovely. However, the rooms were in need of a little maintenance - still lovely, just some little things which were in need of attention. Still lovely but needs a little attention. The common areas are comfortable and welcoming

The lodges were built in the Kibale NP. The lodge is nicely done up and we love the food served - delicious! The only grouse we had was living with many insects. Do remember to spray insect repellent in your lodge.
