Kibale National Park

A simple yet comfortable eco-lodge set deep in the Kibale Forest, ideally located to start the chimpanzee trekking.

9 luxury cottages, 6 forest cottages, 1 elephant banda and 1 sky treehouse, that all have en-suite bathroom and private veranda.


Chimpanzee trekking and chimpanzee habituation experience, forest walks, excursions to the crater lakes and to the Bigodi Swamp.


The forest is home to 70 mammal species including 13 primate species. Among them there are a population of about 1,000 chimpanzees, with 80 individuals habituated to humans, and other endangered species such as the red colobus and the L’Hoest’s monkey.
