Not as arduous as Gorilla treking, but still quite demanding, treking through Kibale forest to experience a family of Chimps at close quarters was truly unforgettable. The trek itself is so interesting, catching sight of duiker, monkeys, & jumping over thick lines of ants. But...More

Our Chimpanzee tour in Kibale was a very good experience for us and we say Chimpanzees form a close distance, something I have not experienced anywhere else apart from the zoo! It was a great experience walking through hardly invisible trails and seeing other primates

hi Emma, my visit to Kibale was part of a 10 day package trip. I believe that there are companies in Fort Portal who can book you a visit there.
