Buraiga Chimpanzee Habituation Experience in Kibale Forest

Posted by on February 1, 2019

The Buraiga Chimpanzee Habituation Experience – 100 USD for Permit

Permit Price for this Chimpanzee Habituation with the Buraiga Group is 100 USD Less


The Buraiga Chimpanzee Habituation Experience in Kibale Forest – CHEX – Chimpanzee Habituation experience at half the price of a regular Habituation Experience in Kibale Forest.  The cost for a permit is 100 USD.  It is an experience where you will do more hiking.  The Buraiga is more active, moves over more territory and many will find it tiring.

We do not automatically use the Buraiga Group when we create a safari itinerary with the Chimpanzee Habituation Experience.  You have to specifically request the Buraiga Group, otherwise, we will not use them.


Why is the Chimpanzee Habituation Experience Price so Low – 100 USD for Permit?

A question you might ask about this new offering from Uganda Wildlife Authority which began on January 1 – 2018 in Kibale Forest named the Buraiga Chimpanzee Habituation Experience and is listed on the new Tariffs and Activity Rates for 2018 -2019. The reason for the lower – 1/2 price Chimpanzee Habituation Experience is that this is a newer group in the earlier Stages of the Habituation Experience Process in which they become used to Human Beings and do not scamper off into the Forest.

In Plain English – the reason the price is 100 USD for a permit is that this is a more iffy experience when compared to the normal Habituation Experience.  You may be in Forest on a Trek but you might not always be near the Chimpanzees.

The Buraiga Chimpanzee Experience is for the true adventure seeker, trekkers who do not mind longer hikes in, out and around Kibale Forest.  The 100 USD permit price reflects that it might be a more iffy experience. When you ask to do the Chimpanzee Habituation Experience – CHEX we will use up to now normal Experience at 200 USD for a permit unless you specify the Buraiga Chimpanzee Group.

Kabiza Wilderness Safaris Staff will go on several of the Buraiga Chimpanzee Habituation Experience in Kibale Forest and will give you more detailed input here regarding this new activity in Kibale Forest.  Allowing you to read it and choose between the various Chimpanzee offering found in the area.


 Our Take and  Opinion:  

The Chimpanzee Habituation Experience is not just about price.  It is about the quality of experience.  We do not recommend the Bugaraiga Group for you because we do not want you traipsing through Kibale Forest.  Yes, it is the lowest priced chimpanzee experience however if it is the price that you are worried about then we can organize into your itinerary Trek in Kalinzu Forest that offers the second Chimpanzee Trekking experience in Uganda at a lot less.

We do not shove you into an experience in order to make a profit, but we like you to know the quality of experience and with the Buraiga Groups we cannot do that.  Even the normal Chimpanzee Habituation Experience is not something that is always 100%.  If the chimpanzees have to forage for fruit in new areas even with them it can b a long hike.
