The trek was quite hard and after 3 hrs we came across 2 or 3 chimps high up in the canopy. Our guide was not very good as she was walking quickly not worried about us older people who couldn't keep up. Several times she...More
The ranger divide the crowd into small group which then go out to their assigned Chimp family with a Ranger. They send out trackers in the early morning to find the locations of the Chimpanzee groups. We had a short hike with a moderate climb...More
My wife and I participated in the full-day chimpanzee habituation experience in Kibale. Our guide Ali was wonderful and very knowledgeable about chimpanzees.
Chimpanzee tracking and habituation are different from each other, and both are different from gorilla trekking. If you opt for chimpanzee tracking...More
My wife and I did the chimp habituation under the pretence we would have more time to spend with the chimps. Although this is possible, you should understand that the "habituation" process is to help the wild animals get comfortable with humans. The day we...More
Our day trekking for Chimpanzees was an amazing experience. All very well organized and professionally set up. We had our briefing outlining all the do's and don'ts, we were then divided into groups of 6 and introduced to our guides. we then took a short...More
I've been on a Chimps trecking this year and the year ago. Last year it was great but this year was poor and you should be warned of "Forest Tours and Safaris" in Fort Portal.
The Trecking this year was illegal I suppose. The first...More

We didn’t have to trek far into the thick forest to track the chimps. A lady chimp in the group we were tracking was in heat and their was total mayhem in the forest with all the males trying to take their chances and beating...More
This is the best place in the world to see primates. Here you find about 13 primate species with Chimpanzee included.Our guide was very informative and I also enjoyed the swamp walk in Bigodi, so may birds and primates to see.
A worthwhile trip.
Chimpanzees are so friendly here.
You an always be assured to see one should you choose to visit this place.
The park rangers are so nice and they live their job.
I recommend Chimp trek here to any tourist

I think you're less likely to "bunch up" with crowds if you do the full day chimpanzee habituation. I did that and while we started out with a group of six, five of them pealed off after two hours and it was just me and the guide for the rest of the day! You may cross paths periodically with another group but it's a fabulous experience. Tip - in your excitement of seeing the chimps, don't forget to carry and keep drinking water. At one point I was so enthralled that I forgot to do so and started experiencing cramps in my legs. I swallowed down a lot of water and was fine, but I didn't make that mistake again.
