Budongo Forest Reserve Chimpanzee Trekking Day Trip Safari Itinerary

Leave Kampala at 0600 Hours for a 4 Hour drive north to Budongo Forest. The drive through the Ugandan country-side alone is worth the trip all the way to Masindi. You will be in a comfortable vehicle and in the company of a professional English speaking Safari driver guide. Bottle water will be provided during the safari.

 

Arrive at Kaniyo Pabidi at Budongo Forest Reserve and lunch follows. Early afternoon you will start the Chimpanzee tracking through the Mahogany Forest. Tracking habituated chimpanzees means that the chimps are used to human beings getting close to them. This is a process that takes several years. They are not tame, but simply used to having humans near them.

 

The guides follow the daily movements of the habituated chimpanzee groups. Three years of recording their movements indicate July, August and September offer a 90% success rate of seeing the chimps.

 

In February, March, April, May and September this decreases to 70%, and in October, November, December and January when food is rarely available the chances drop to 50%. The fluctuating fruiting seasons of the forest trees determine the chimp’s movements.

 

Each day, chimpanzees like gorillas move to a new location for the night building new nests. Budongo Forest is a project of both Jane Goodall Institute and Uganda Wildlife Authority.

 

Enjoy your time with the chimpanzees. The chimp habituation is a wonderful experience to learn more about the chimp community and discover the features we have in common!

 

After the tracking trip, return to Kampala by 1900 Hours. It's a full day, but well worth it and a most rewarding experience.
