Itinerary


Day 1 - Kampala to Kibale National Park (Bigodi Swamp Walk)

You will be picked up around 7:00 am from Kampala (or Entebbe) by our Guide who will brief you about your tour and then depart for Kibale Forest National Park which will take around five and a half hours of drive.

Post Lunch you will be taken for Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary walk. This is a guided swamp walk that takes you closer seeing primates mostly monkeys, birds and butterflies. The wetland is a bird paradise with about 138 species and is best known for being home to the Great Blue Turaco.

This is a 2.5 - 3 hour walk and is a must for bird lovers. You will need good walking shoes since part of the walk is sometimes muddy. Hopefully, you will spot the elusive Sitatunga antelope and the Shoebill Stork. You will meet some of the primates here, even a chimpanzee at times. Other primate species include the black-and-white colobus, grey-cheeked mangabey, red-tailed, l’Hoest’s and blue monkeys, and olive baboons. Also, Bushbucks and mongooses and many more can be found here. There is also an abundance of butterflies. Bigodi Sanctuary is located outside the park in Magombe Swamp.

Day 2 - Kibale National Park (Chimp Tracking) to Kampala

Kibale Forest National Park boasts the highest number of primate species in the world, including the chimpanzees. Approximately 5,000 chimpanzees live in the wild in Uganda, which makes it a perfect place to spot them!

The park is popular for its primate’s population like the chimpanzees, colobus monkeys, red-cheeked monkeys and red-tailed monkeys. On your chimpanzee trails, these are regularly seen swinging in the forest trees and others feeding on the wild fruits.

An experienced ranger will take you chimp tracking in the morning around 6:30 am. Once you locate the chimpanzees, you will have a full hour with them. You will return to the lodge for lunch after which you will be transferred back to Kampala (or Entebbe).
