You will make a stopover for lunch in the town of Fort Portal before proceeding to Ndali Lodge or Rwenzori View Guest House where you will be before tracking gorillas on Day 2.
You will spend the afternoon at leisure unwinding or trek through the neighbouring villages and small towns.
Dine and overnight at Ndali Lodge, or Rwenzori View Guest House, or Mantana Tented Camp.
Be at the ranger station found in Kibale National Park by 8:00 am to start tracking the habituated Chimpanzees. These impressive chimps are the most closely related animal species to humans, and are very dramatic to watch play and wrangle in the trees. The large forest is a haven to more than 13 primate species including the red colobus monkey, the blue monkey, pottos, baboons, the L’Hoest, bush babies, black-faced vervet monkeys and the grey mangabey. The in the shade forest trail gives ample opportunities to sight at the Prirogrine’s ground thrush. The hard to pin down forest elephants which are smaller than their savanna cousins seasonally move into the parks developed area, whereas other mammals like the buffaloes, numerous antelope species and the big forest hog are usually seen.
Dinner and overnight at Lodge
