Primates of Kibale Forest

Explore the habitat of the great apes and see your closest living relatives eye-to-eye.

Day 1 - Arrive at Turaco Treetops, settle in and feel the forest. Grab a drink and enjoy the nature from your private balcony. End your day with an evening walk on the reforestated boundary zone of the lodge. 

Day 2 - You will start your day with an early breakfast, before you are heading off to Kayanchu, the starting point of the chimpanzee trekking. A ranger from Uganda Wildlife Authority will guide you through the lush Kibale Forest until you find what you came for: a visit to one of the chimpanzee families. 

Day 3 – Wake up to the sounds of the forest. After your breakfast you will visit Community Based Organisation (KAFRED). One of their community guides will take you around to explore the Bigodi Wetlands Sanctuary that inhabits over 200 species of birds and several species of primates and monkeys, including the Black and White Colobus, Red Colobus, Red Tailed Monkey, Grey Cheeked Mangabey, Olive Baboon, L’hoest Monkey, Vervet Monkey and the Blue Monkey.

Day 4 – Departure day - enjoy your breakfast and drive off with new nature memories.
