Kibale Forest is composed of rolling green hills dotted with banana plantations and crater lakes, with a backdrop of the soaring, snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains. This region is one of the best places in Africa to view wild chimpanzees. The chimps are habituated to humans, so they can be viewed at relatively close quarters as they eat, feed, vocalize, and swing through the trees. If you’ve been gorilla trekking, chimpanzee trekking tends to be a lot louder and more energetic! You can also explore the Bigodi Wetland on foot, in search of the giant (but elusive) shoebill – a giant stork-like bird that can attain a height of five feet. We recommend staying at Kyaninga Lodge which is made up of expansive cliffside, log cabins overlooking a crater lake where you can kayak or take a refreshing dip post chimp trek.
