The chimpanzee Experience is a unique opportunity that will allow you to follow a chimpanzee group in its daily activities.
Accompanying Kibale reserve researchers and rangers, you will be on the forest floor early in the morning to watch the chimps wake-up (de-nesting) and search for their breakfast. Then you will follow them all day - observing the full gamut of their behavior - until they build new nests (nesting) for themselves at around 7.30pm.
You will be part of the Uganda Wildlife Authority initiative to habituate chimps to the human presence without changing their natural environment. This is one of the great moments of your safari! Second night at Primate Lodge (Lux. Tents) near the park headquarters. (B-L-D)
