Guests are taken to the park headquarters in Kibale Forest where you meet the park ranger who will act as your guide for the chimp-tracking.
You enter the forest and following signs and chimp calls your guide leads you to the chimpanzees. Chimpanzee sightings are not guaranteed, however the odds of encountering them have greatly increased in recent years, now standing at 90% or over.
Whilst chimpanzee tracking you are likely to see at least two or three other types of primate, most probably the grey-cheeked mangabey and red-tailed monkey. You hear plenty of birdsong but it is very difficult to see any birds in the heart of the forest due to the dense vegetation.
Once with the chimpanzees you will be able to spend an hour watching them. You then walk back to the park headquarters with the whole experience usually taking around three to four hours.
