Our Chimpanzee tour in Kibale was a very good experience for us and we say Chimpanzees form a close distance, something I have not experienced anywhere else apart from the zoo! It was a great experience walking through hardly invisible trails and seeing other primates

What a trip! Small groups follow barely visible paths through the jungle to track these amazing creatures. Getting within feet of these relatives of ours is fantastic and one can see them in the wild. Many troops of Chimps are used to human presence but...More

We did the full day habituation experience with the chimps. We saw a great variety of behaviours during our experience - climbing trees, building nests, walking through the forest, and resting. Our guide was informative and looked after us well.
