kibale national park

famously known for Chimpanzee tracking


Kibale is highest park’s northern tip at 1,590m above sea level. The lowest point is 1,100m on the floor of the Albertine Rift Valley to the south. 351 tree species have been recorded in the park, some rise to over 55m and are over 200 years old. Kibale’s varied altitude supports different types of habitat, ranging from wet tropical forest on the Fort Portal plateau (Uganda’s most rewarding destinations to explore) to woodland and savanna on the rift valley floor and patches of grassland and swamp dominating the northern and central parts of the park on an elevated plateau. Kibale is famously known for Chimpanzee tracking. It is also home to a total of 70 mammal species, most famously 13 species of primate including the chimpanzee. 375 bird species have also been recorded. The park adjoins Queen Elizabeth National Park to the south to create a 180km-long corridor for wildlife. Kibale is one of Africa’s foremost research sites and lies close to the tranquil Ndali-Kasenda crater area
