This trip gives a chance to have an encounter with the highest primate numbers in one destination. The park is a home to 13 primate species; including the illusive chimpanzees.

Day 1: Arrive in Uganda

You will be picked from Entebbe Airport by a guide driver who will bring you to Kampala for an overnight. If you arrive on time, the driver will take you around Kampala for city tours.

Day 2: Drive to Kibale through Fort Portal

Set off from Kampala after breakfast and drive through an incredible scenery of tea plantations and the luxurious green countryside which characterizes so much of western Uganda. Arrive in time for dinner at Primate Lodge in the park.

Day 3: Primate Trail and Bigodi Swamp Walk

After an early breakfast, head out for primate tracking adventure in the forest. As you search for Kibale’s resident chimpanzees, don’t miss other primates such as grey-cheeked mangabays, red colubus, red-tailed and blue monkeys. Your expert guide will share the secrets of the forest’s flora and fauna, guaranteeing you an informative and enjoyable trail.

Visit Bigodi Women’s Group for captivating boardwalk trail through the papyrus swamp of the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary. A cultural performance or a sunset drink at a nearby lodge will seal your day.

Day 4: Cultural Tour and onward travel

Go on an enthralling cultural tour of the Bigodi for guided nature walks, homestead visits, where you will see the preparation of food and learn traditional craft demonstrations (basket weaving and paper beads) from Bigodi Women’s Group.

You can choose to continue south to Semliki National Park, Queen Elizabeth, Murchison Falls National parks (see our itineraries) or return to Kampala. If you love birding, you can spend a few more days and enjoy the birding experience in a place where the tranquil is only interrupted by the melodious sounds of the numerous forest birds.
