Day by Day Overview
We will depart Kampala after breakfast and head westwards to Fort Portal town. The drive will take about 4-5 hours with lunch in Fort Portal before continuing to Kibale National Park. On arrival you will go for either a community walk, visit the beautiful Crater Lakes region for spectacular views or take a guided swamp walk. This 2½ – 3 hour walk takes you closer to seeing primates, mostly monkeys, birds and butterflies and is a must for bird lovers. Hopefully you will spot the elusive sitatunga antelope and the shoebill stork as well as some of the primates, such as the black-and-white colobus, grey-cheeked mangabey, red-tailed, l’Hoest’s and blue monkeys, olive baboons, and maybe chimpanzees. There is also bushbuck and mongoose as well as much more wildlife. You will need good walking shoes as part of the walk is sometimes muddy.
After breakfast you will report at the Kanyanchu Tourist Centre at 08.00 am for a briefing before trekking to find the chimps in the forest. The park is only accessible on foot and the walk will provide you with the opportunity to also see a variety of other primates and animals as well as birds, and a variety of butterflies and other insects. You will have lunch and afterwards set off on the return journey to Kampala, arriving late in the evening.
