Tour overview

Chimpanzees are more closely related to human beings (about 98% DNA compatibility) far morethan any other living creature and are tremendously fun to watch. Uganda has about 5,000 Chimpanzees.

Take a trip to the most accessible of Uganda’s major rainforests, Kibale National Park, where you can expect to see chimps de-nesting (coming out of their nocturnal nests), creating new nests and doing their other daily activities in their natural habitat.

You can also enjoy chimpanzee viewing at the Ngamba Islands Chimpanzee Sanctuary. The island is home to about 52 chimpanzees. On the island, you will have the privilege of seeing the chimpanzees up close. You will view their morning feeding from the raised visitors’ platform along the edge of the sanctuary’s fence. It’s fascinating to watch the chimps interact with each other and with their care givers. You will also observe the various personalities in the group; with some whistling for food and others clapping.

Chimps exclusive

The Day starts as early as 07:00am where we set off from Kampala and head to Entebbe. In about 40 minutes (less or more) we shall be at Entebbe and head straight to the pier where we get the boat to Ngamba Islands. The boat trip on the Lake Victoria is fascinating and also offers birders a chance to
watch some unique water birds. Upon arrival at the Chimp Islands, you will have interesting guides welcoming you and telling you about the place. This activity is crowned by the chance to see these
chimpanzees at the feeding time.

Return with those memories to the main land and enter the Uganda Wildlife Education Center where you will also get a lunch break if not had before, and also tour around the center which has all the flora and fauna of Uganda being represented here.
