A 2 DAY SAFARI TO KIBALE NATIONAL PARK
Day 1 You will be picked up from your Hotel by your Safari guide and driven to Kibale National Park. This scenic drive takes approximately 5 hours arriving in the afternoon. You will stop over in Fort portal town for lunch before driving to Ndali Lodge/ Rwenzori View Guest House where you will stay prior to your chimpanzee tracking tomorrow. After checking in, you will go for a guided walk in Bigodi Swamp to look for different bird species like the Shining Blue Kingfisher, Blue Throated Roller and other rare species and also find the fruiting trees, which attract Narina Trogon, Pied Hornbill, Yellow Spotted, Hairy Breasted and Yellow-Billed Barbets. Overnight at Ndali Lodge/Rwenzori View Guest house/Kanyankyu Ecological site (FB)
Day 2 After breakfast, report to the ranger station in Kibale National Park at 08.00am to track habituated chimps – these delightful apes, more closely related to humans than to any other living creature, are tremendous fun to watch as they squabble and play in fruiting trees. The incredibly diverse forest is home to over 13 species of primates including red Colobus monkey, the rare L’Hoest, blue monkey, grey mangabey, pottos, black faced vervet monkeys, baboons and also bushbabies. A network of shady forest trails provides much to delight botanists and butterfly lovers, while birders are in for a treat with 335 species recorded including the endemic Prirogrine’s ground thrush. The elusive forest elephant, smaller and hairier that its savannah counterpart, moves seasonally into the developed part of the park, while other terrestrial mammals include buffalo, giant forest hog and a half dozen antelope species.
After this wonderful experience, we will depart to Kampala arriving in the late afternoon.
