One Day Chimpanzee Tracking at Budongo Forest
Chimpanzees in the wild day trip from Kampala
Minimum of Four Participants
A one day Chimpanzee Tracking Safari in the wild of Budongo Forest is an affordable possibility. Budongo Forest is a short 3 1/2 hours from Kampala. This Ironwood and Mahogany Forest is a most beautiful destination in itself, add Chimpanzee Tracking, a Forest Walk or Birding Walk, Lunch with 2 sodas or one beer and still be back in Kampala by evening.
You can have other chimpanzee experiences such as Ngamba Island or even Entebbe Zoo, both are great experiences, but there is nothing like the tracking the chimpanzees in the wild. To see them in their natural habitat, you being just a few meters from them to see them foraging in the wild, building nests, tending their young, not in zoo, but in an African rainforest in Uganda, that experiences cannot be replicated anywhere.
Invest a day of your time in a one day chimpanzee Safari to Budongo Forest – if you can add a few of your friends or your family to your group – the safari becomes most affordable.
