En-route, you will sight a number of baboons and monkeys at the sides of the road looking at you expectantly for a fruit. Lunch will be had en-route. Once in Kibale Forest National Park, you will go for an afternoon Bigodi wetland eco-walk. This eco-walk is very rewarding with loads of flora and fauna.

  • Once you encounter the chimpanzees, you have one hour to observe them as they jump from one tree branch to another as they scavenge for food, bond with each other, feed, play and whatever else you will find them doing. Notice how their behaviours are similar to human behaviour. They live in troops that can have at the very least 25 individuals. You may take pictures and make videos, though hard due to their constant movement, with cameras without a flash. After an hour, you’ll leave the chimpanzees and then trek back to the starting point making a lunch stop to devour your packed lunch. 
  • Transfer to Kampala: Your driver-guide will be waiting for you to proceed on a transfer back to Kampala, with a drop off at your hotel/apartment.
