Uganda itinerary - Kibale's major attraction is the opportunity to track habituated chimps - these delightful apes, more closely related to humans than to any other living creature, are tremendous fun to watch as they squabble and play in fruiting trees.

 
Kibale National Park contains one of the loveliest and most varied tracts of tropical forest in Uganda. Kibale National Park is suited in the western part of Uganda and covers an area of about 26km south-east of Fort Port, just over 320km's from Kampala or an hours drive from Kasese. The park itself is easily accessible with a good internal infrastructure; many of the facilities are community based, thus providing the local population with the necessary revenue to ensure the long-term protection of the area.

Kibale National Park chimp

As the most accessible of Uganda's major rainforests, Kibale National Park is home to a vast number of species of birds as well as the greatest variety and concentration of primates found anywhere in East Africa; 13 remarkable primate species, including the uncommon L'Hoests monkey and the endangered red colobus monkey flourish within the park. Kibale’s 1450 chimpanzee indicate Uganda’s biggest population of this threatened primate. The black & white colobus, red tailed monkey, blue monkey, olive baboon, grey cheeked mangabey, bush baby and potto are among the other primates.
A network of shady forest trails provides much to delight botanists and butterfly lovers, while birders are in for a treat with 375 species recorded including the endemic Prirogrine's ground thrush.

The elusive forest elephant, smaller and hairier than its savannah counterpart, moves seasonally into the developed part of the park, while other terrestrial mammals include buffalo, giant forest hog and a half dozen antelope species making Kibale National Park is a superb safari destination.

The park has a tropical type of climate with two rainy periods, March to May and September to November. The annual mean temperature range rises from 14° - 15°C, - minimum to 26° - 27°C maximum. The annual rainfall is 1,100 - 1,600 mm. There is a pronounced dry season in December to February. Rain falls more in the North than in the South.
