Details of Kibale National Park

Chimpanzees are another huge element of Uganda’s popularity, with Kibale National Park offering one of the best chimpanzee viewing opportunities in the world.

Visitors to this green and verdant park can expect to see, hear, and even smell our closest living relatives in close proximity as they race through the trees overhead.

A large expanse of pristine forest and close to wetlands, Kibale is also home to an additional six primate species, forest elephants, and a huge variety of bird life. In fact, more than 370 species call the park’s trees and wetlands home.




Kibale National Park is most famous for its chimpanzees, which can be seen here in huge numbers. Uganda's largest chimpanzee population, numbering 1,450 individuals, lives within the shady groves of this beautiful forest, along with 12 other primate species including red colobus monkeys and the rare I'Hoest's Monkey.

Chimpanzee trekking and habituation are popular activities within the park.

Most famous for its primate population, Kibale is actually home to 70 species of mammal including elephants, leopards, and warthogs. There are also almost 400 species of bird and more than 200 species of butterfly.

The park is also home to the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary and Kihingami Wetland, offering visitors the opportunity to experience a very different biosphere alive with animals not seen on conventional safaris.
