Kibale Forest National Park


Kibale Forest National Park connects to the northern border of Queen Elizabeth National Park in Western Uganda. As the name implies, most of it’s 795 square kilometers is covered by dense forest, home to over 375 bird species and around 70 mammal species, among them humans closest relative – the Chimpanzee. It forms a 180km-long wildlife corridor which links the southern Tip of Queen Elizabeth National Park, Ishasha, with the northern Tip of Kibale Forest National Park, Sebitoli.

The park’s location is in close proximity to various sights of interest. Within half a day’s journey, you can reach Queen Elizabeth National, the Rwenzori Mountains, Semuliki National Park as well as the Toro-Semuliki Wilflife Reserve and Katonga Game Reserve. The main tourist attraction is chimpanzee tracking, and Kibale Forest is arguably one of the best sites world wide to do this. Apart from Chimpanzees, the forest is also home to 12 other primate species, among them the L’Hoest’s Monkey, Black and White Colobus, Red Colobus, the Uganda Mangabey and Blue Monkey.
