3 days / 2 nights Chimp trek & Crater tours
Your 3 day Chimpanzee trekking will take you to the western side of Uganda, a region with beautiful hills that descend from the famous Mount Rwenzori. The highest Rwenzori peaks are permanently snow-capped, and along with Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya are the only such ones in Equatorial Africa.

Kibale National park is an extension of the great rainforests of central Africa. It is inhabited by three large “communities” of chimps, each numbering more than 100 individuals. We shall enjoy the activities in the forest that range from Chimps hunting techniques to the organization that these creatures have.
