Walking through the understory in the Kibale Forest, you hear chimpanzees long before you ever see them. Their screams and “pant hoots” carry to you, quickening the pulse, for you realize there is no comforting safety provided by a vehicle. This is real – you are on foot in the midst of a family of powerful wild animals that, in flashes, are disconcertingly human-like. You are the outsider here, in the chimps’ home at their pleasure. This moment is one very few get to experience and Kibale is one of a handful of places where you can do so.

Kibale harbours incredibly biodiversity, and besides chimps, contains 12 other primate species, a total 60 mammal species, and 325 bird species. You will see many of these wild creatures during the chimp trek. After encountering the chimpanzees, you will spend a full one-hour with them taking photos, seeing them as they eat fruits, make pant hooting calls, copulate and mate, patrol, hunt and socialize. You return from the encounter connecting to the lodge for relaxation, dinner and overnight.
