Things to do in Kibale National Park
Here is just a small sampling of the things you can do while visiting Kibale National Park.

Chimpanzee tracking: There are nearly 1,500 chimpanzees in Kibale National Park and chimpanzee tracking will take you deep into the heart of the forest to find them. Chimpanzee tracking typically occurs in the morning hours when you can see the primates waking, patrolling and preparing to hunt. Along the way, you will see many other animals as well.

Bird Watching: There are hundreds of bird species in Kibale, making it an ideal location for bird watchers. The brown-crested alethe, little greenbul, brown illadopsis, yellow spotted nicator, African grey parrot, red-faced warbler and scores of other species await your discovery.

Nature walks: A nature walk through Kibale is an eye-opening experience and one that combines primate tracking with birding and cultural exchanges. On your trek through the park, you will no doubt encounter the local Batooro and Bakiga people, modern day descendants of Uganda’s first nations.

Take a nocturnal walk: A night walk through Kibale National Park is not like walking through the woods in your home country. In Uganda, the sights and sounds of the jungle will amaze you. You’ll see nocturnal creatures such as bush babies, pottos and tree pangolins as well as numerous birds that only come out in the dark. You’ll never think of the jungle in the same way again.
