Kibale National Park

Kibale National Park is a beautiful slice of nature, quite literally a modern-day Garden of Eden. Preserved as Uganda’s premier chimpanzee tracking destination, Kibale National Park protects 766km² of predominantly forested habitat that extends more than 50 km (31 mi) south from the main Fort Portal–Kampala Road to the northeast border of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Originally gazetted as a forest reserve in 1932, Kibale forest was later upgraded to national park status and extended southward to form a contiguous block with the Queen Elizabeth National Park in 1993. This bond creates a spectacular 180 km corridor for wildlife migration.

It connects Ishasha in the South and Sebitoli in the North. This vast expanse of parkland allows you to view a vast plethora of wild animals. The trailhead for chimpanzee tracking and the main center for tourist activity within the park is the Kanyanchu Visitors’ Centre, which lies 35 km (22 mi) south of Fort Portal town along a newly tarmac paved road that continues south to Kamwenge and Ibanda.
