Chimpanzee trackingTracking chimpanzees is a very interesting experience. Get your walking shoes on as we move through bush and jungle to spend one hour with our fascinating relatives, watching them swing through the trees or move quickly across the ground in front of us.
Chimpanzees and humans share more than 98% of their genetic code.
WHAT TO BRINGWear shoes with good traction, suitable for steep muddy slopes
Some people feel more comfortable when wearing long sleeved clothes when moving through the jungle
Carry rain gear, as the weather can be unpredictable
Carry enough water and food
When taking photos, remember your subjects are black animals in dim light, and flash is not allowed. Use a fast film (400-800 ASA) or use these settings on your digital camera.
The chances of seeing the chimps are more than 95% in Kibale Forest! Which makes it the best place in East Africa to track chimps!
It is also possible to do the habituation experience, which means you can spend the whole day with them.
The number of chimpanzee permits per day is limited, so please book this activity in advance. It is possible to book this activity through Chimps’ Nest.
We can provide a lunch box for people who are going to do the chimpanzee habituation experience.
