Whilst touring in the depths of the green forest you will be girdled by the chattering of the birds and actually anticipate seeing at least 5 or 6 other types of primates. The walking is fairly easy due to the well- maintained trails and reasonable flat terrain.

For the chimp trackers and researchers, this is the best experience which involves staying with the chimps from sun up to sun down and provides the occasion to really connect with the group and learn about the diurnal behaviours and different characteristics of the chimpanzees.

You’ll witness the chimpanzees within a few metres of these entertaining and veritably social hams, participating in their daily lives and passing through their day- to- day conditioning. Chimpanzees, our closest relatives are extremely risked with only an estimated 5000 remaining in Uganda.

After the delicious meal, your driver will drop you off at the starting point of the Bigodi swamp walk. Bigodi Swamp walk. The Bigodi wetland sanctuary is a small but impressive wetland project that protects the Magombe swamp and is an important contribution to Ugandan conservation. It is run by the Kibale Association for Rural and Environmental Development (KAFRED) and all the funds received are used to support the local community projects in the Bigodi area.
