Day 2: Kibale Forest Experience (Full Day)

On this day you have the option of participating in a full-day of learning the lifestyle of the chimpanzees (a process called habituation), or simply learn the highlights of their lifestyle through trekking them and seeing their daily life-preview. 

Option one: Chimps Habituation:

You may choose to learn the life style of chimpanzees (the closest relatives to humans) for a full day (a process called habituation). While walking through the forest, the guide will educate you on the various flora and fauna found in the park. You will also witness how the chimps de-nest their nocturnal nest (something they do each morning), feed, groom the young, play and construct new nest in the evening etc.

The park supports the highest concentration of primates in the world: there are 13 species, including Black-and-White Colobus, Red colobus, L’Hoests monkeys, baboons, Bush baby and abundant chimpanzees. While over 325 avian species are recorded in Kibale; there are also 144 species of butterflies and moths to be found here. We suggest a packed lunch as this might be very engaging and long.

Option Two: Chimps Trekking

After an early breakfast you will enjoy a guided nature walk in the tropical rainforest in search of the wild chimpanzees, red-tailed monkeys, black-and-white colobus monkeys and many others.
Afternoon Activity shall depend on the chosen activity (between the above as each require different level of time commitment). In case you choose the option of Chimpanzee trekking, then after lunch we will take you for a guided nature walk in the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary.

The sanctuary offers great birding opportunities and nature walks. Besides birding, Bigodi village has a rich cultural heritage site where you can mix with the local people and enjoy the African traditions in terms of lifestyle and entertainment. Later you will return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
