Overview & Features

Kibale National Park contains one of the loveliest and most varied tracts of tropical forest in Uganda. Forest cover, interspersed with patches of grassland and swamp, dominates the northern and central parts of the park on an elevated plateau. The park is home to a total of 70 mammal species, most famously 13 species of primate including the chimpanzee. It also contains over 375 species of birds. Kibale adjoins Queen Elizabeth National Park to the south to create a 180km-long corridor for wildlife between Ishasha, the remote southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park, and Sebitoli in the north of Kibale National Park. The Kibale-Fort Portal area is one of Uganda’s most rewarding destinations to explore. The park lies close to the tranquil Ndali-Kasenda crater area and within half a day’s drive of the Queen Elizabeth, Rwenzori Mountains, Semuliki National Parks and the Toro-Semliki Wildlife Reserve.

Getting there:

The 795 sq km park can be accessed from Uganda’s capital, Kampala, along a paved road via Kasese through the Queen Elizabeth National Park. While Kanyanchu Visitor Centre – the primary centre for tourist activities – 36km from Fort Portal can be reached via a dirt road and is accessible by public transport. The park can also be reached from Kampala via Mubende and Fort Portal or through Mbarara –Ibanda and Kamwenge. There is daily public transport between Kampala and Fort portal by bus.

    The journey, though fairly bumpy and fairly long is worth the try. At the forest, you do not only come up-close with man’s closest friends but also get the cool treatment of the tranquil weather. The beauty of the scenery that envelopes one is a lasting experience for any lover of nature. Be ware though, the baboons tend to want to move in with you deep in the night. some times with the urge to try on all your clothing and other personal effects. A much fun time though having to hear them in the middle of the night communicating to one another and probably giving others the detailed report of having been to your cottage. I loved it indeed.I loved it, I LOVED IT

    I am still so exited! We went to see the Shimps in Kibale in December 2013.
    Newer did I dream, that we would come so close and have so much time with these wild cousins of ours!
    The guides are really professional, and the goup of shimps, that they know well, is well worth visiting. You get up to 4 hours in the forest, but we found the group after just half on hours walk. The forest is pretty easy to approach, evne for an older person, good paths are there and you do not need to climb!
    The Kibale Forest safari was a one day trip as a part of our 6-day days safari with African Big Five Safaris. I can warmly recommend them!
