A relatively early morning start, to report to the ranger station in Kibale National Park at 08.00am
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.
The incredibly diverse forest is home to over 13 species of primates including red Colobus
monkey, the rare L’Hoest, blue monkey, grey mangabey, pottos,
black faced vervet monkeys, baboons and also bush babies.
A network of shady forest trails provides much to delight botanists
and butterfly lovers, while birders are in for a treat with 335 species recorded including the endemic Prirogrine’s ground thrush. The elusive forest elephant, smaller and hairier that 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.
