Chimpanzee trekking in Kibale Forest National Park - the highest concentration of primates in the world

A stay in a luxury tented camp within the stunning Kibale Forest National Parkis memorable nature travel enough, but trekking through the forest to view chimpanzees in their natural home takes it into the realm of legendary. Chimps crashing and bounding through the park while you sit with local rangers amongst is wild Africa at its best and to come face-to-face with these animals is a special experience, particularly when their natural inquisitiveness has them approaching and mimicking your actions. There are a few already habituated groups within the park that are wonderful to meet and observe, but there is nothing like the first few steps an unfamiliar wild chimp takes towards you; the strange mutual recognition and comfort of company is powerful stuff.
