Kibale National park is an extensive biodiversity National Park, protecting large block of rainforest birding. It harbors the greatest variety and concentration of primates found anywhere in East Africa.
Superb birds and primates combined with easy access, a good infrastructure and a variety of interesting activities make this forest a worthwhile destination.
Many of the facilities are community-based, thus providing the local community with the necessary revenue to keep their interest focused on the long-term protection of the areas.
As the most accessible of Uganda’s major rainforests, Kibale is a home for over 13 remarkable primate species, including L’Hoest’s and red colobus monkey. The elusive forest elephant, smaller and hairier move seasonally into the developed part of the park.
