Chimpanzee Tracking in Africa

Tracking the chimpanzee is a very interesting experience. The way they feed, climb trees, respond to humans, caring for their young ones, is just phenomenal. There are three chimpanzee groups in Kibale which are habituated and only six people per group in the morning and evening. Kibale has over 1450 chimpanzees which represents Uganda's largest population of this endangered primate.
Kibale Natinal Park offers you The Chimpanzee Experience that includes Chimpanzee Habituation and Chimpanzee trekking. During the tracking, you accompany Kibale’s researchers and habituators as they follow chimpanzee during their daily activities, thereby getting them used to human presence without altering their natural behaviour. You can expect to see the chimps de-nesting (coming out of their nocturnal nests) between 05.30-06.30 before following them during the day until they create new nests and retire for the night around 19.00.
