Day by Day Overview

Departure in the early morning from Entebbe or Kampala on a wonderful drive taking you through the gorgeous countryside all the way to Kibale Forest National Park found in western Uganda. Here you will observe the chimpanzees in their natural habitat of the Kibale Rainforest. You will drive past local homesteads, tea farms and banana plantations. Have lunch at your lodging.

Bigodi community walk takes you to the homesteads in the local communities close to the park. On this village walk, you’ll be escorted by one of the locals who is very knowledgeable about the lifestyle and cultures of the different tribes here. You will have a door-to-door village tour as well as visit the churches and the community schools. The walk will familiarizes you with the village lifestyle of these African people in this remote area. Head back to your lodging for dinner and the overnight.

Enjoy an African bush breakfast before setting out chimpanzee trekking in the forest, an amazing experience within Kibale Forest. Other than chimpanzees, there is a wide variety of primates, rich bird life and butterflies. Return to your lodging for lunch before going on an afternoon Bigodi Swamp hike. This walk is very popular and begins in the Bigodi Wetlands Sanctuary where you will see various birds and animals. We recommend that you wear comfortable walking shoes as this walk will go through some muddy places. You will also come across a number of primates here and occasionally see chimpanzees too.
