2 Days/ 1 Night Budongo Forest Reserve Chimpanzee expedition offers a unique opportunity to meet our closest relatives in their natural habitat. About 700 chimpanzees live in the Budongo Forest Reserve, the largest remaining tropical rainforest in East Africa.

 

In addition, there are four other major primate species in the Budongo Forest. You’ll team up with field assistants at the Budongo Conservation Field Station to observe chimps and other primates as they forage for food in the morning and late afternoon.

 

The Budongo Forest is home to many fruiting trees and several species of primate that depend upon tree fruit as a major component of their diets. Budongo Forest is ranked among the top five tourist destinations in Uganda. It is a hot spot for species diversity.

 

The forest contains the Royal Mile, named for its popularity as a traditional stopover for Uganda's royalty. The Royal Mile is a superb birding spot, with many West and Central African species in addition to the local East African species. The forest is home to the largest chimpanzee population in Uganda.

 

Chimpanzee Tracking (Kaniyo Pabidi only). The walk is generally lasts between 2 to 4 hours in the forest. Maximum of 2 groups of 4-6 people per morning and afternoon will be allowed to track chimpanzees with our experienced guides. The tracking will include one hour with the wild community of chimpanzees that we have habituated.

 

This community is known as the southern community and consists of around 45-50 individuals. The walk will include viewing of other wildlife in the forest and also seeing the oldest mahogany trees in East Africa. Other diurnal primates that may be seen during this walk are black and white colobus, red tail monkeys, blue monkeys and olive baboons.
