Uganda is unique in its ability to combine a huge diversity of wildlife and safari experiences along a single itinerary. Chimp tracking in Uganda is one of the most remarkable wildlife experiences available on the continent.
There are 3 major chimp trekking destinations in Uganda: Kibale Forest National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, and Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Kibale Forest is the best place for chimp trekking, as the forest has high population densities and sightings are most common here.
What is chimpanzee trekking?
Chimpanzee trekking, one of the most popular wildlife activities in Uganda, allows you to step into the world of chimpanzees in the wild. Uganda Wildlife Authority Interpretive Rangers lead a small group (maximum of 8) into the realm of the chimps.
The treks last about three hours and include a maximum of one hour with the chimps, during which you can expect to see them from a safe but intimate distance of 8-10 metres. Get up close and personal with the chimpanzees and discover their beauty, intelligence, and social structures.
