Proceed to the park for Chimpanzee trekking. In company of experienced and well informed rangers, you start a forest trek to track the chimpanzee. These apes often live in groups and have been habituated to tolerate presence of human beings. You will encounter these rather gentle giants, closest relatives of human beings still living in the wild. Humans share up to 98% of genetic material with the chimpanzee. You will meet them as they feed, play and jump through trees to give you a memorable experience of a lifetime. While you enjoy chimpanzee trekking, you will also encounter lots of bird species, forest elephants (if lucky), and up to 13 other primate species which have earned Kibale the name “Primate City of Africa”.
