During the journey we lessen the pressure and fatigue with a punctuation of stopovers at sceneries, typical African village setup in the far countryside and tea plantations along the drive.

When entering the Kibale area we keep our eyes open since there is an amazing display of primates in this area. Monkey species that can be seen are for example black and white colobus, red colobus, red tailed monkey and grey cheeked mangabeys.

Overnight Primate Lodge

Head into the forest of the Primate city of Kibale in the morning for a full day of participating in chimpanzee habituation, the first primate we trek during this Uganda & Rwanda gorilla safari.
