This gives a range of places to visit. It takes you to Kibale national park which dominates Uganda’s primates.

Assemble at Kanyankyu  camp at 0800hours to go for the most popular activity in this park which is Chimpanzee tracking. Chimpanzees are man’s closet cousins though they are one of the most threatened primate’s species. More primates like Black and white Columbus monkeys, L’Hoest Monkeys, Grey checked Mangabey, Red tailed monkeys, bush babies, pottos and many bird species like the yellow spotted nectar, ramped tinker bird, Little greenbul, green breasted pitta, the crowned eagle, black bee eater and mammals like Elephants can be seen in this walk.

Kibale National park, which averages about 3,300 feet in elevation, is an extension of the great rain forests of central Africa. It is inhabited by three large “communities” of chimps, each numbering more than 100 individuals. Each community has a complicated social structure. The big adult males dominate the group and defend the community territory against incursions by male outsiders; the females usually wander in small family groups.

Typically, we locate the chimps by listening for their pant-hooting calls, then hustle to the area from which they are calling. We get to observe them as they feed in fruiting trees, lounge, and socialize with each other, or even, occasionally hunt.

In the afternoon we visit a nearby forest swamp that is excellent for viewing primates and other forest animals. At the Eastern edge of Kibale forest is Bigodi Wetland sanctuary which is maintained by the local community. You will expect birds like the great Blue turaco, blue monkeys, baboons, otters, mongoose, bush bucks, bush pigs and among others. Connect to Bwindi for another primate photo safari.

Of all the many fascinating wildlife photographic subjects out there, few species will get your heart racing like that of the larger than life, Mountain Gorillas. These magnificent creatures are and absolute must photograph species.

No words can describe the feeling when sitting within a few feet of a 500 pound Silver back Mountain Gorilla, with a head the size of a man’s torso, hands the size of dinner plates and the strength of more than 10 football players. Their intimidating size and yet a stare that carries an indescribable gentleness has dubbed them the name “Gentle Giants.
