Kibale Forest National park

Kibale Forest National park

This equatorial rainforest (lowland tropical rainforest, deciduous forest and mountane forest) was recently established as a reserve, and is home to the highest concentration of primates in the world. Twelve different species have been recorded. The main attraction are the 500 Chimpanzees. On a guided forest walk, you may encounter the chimps, feeding in and on a huge figtree where they spend the day. With its varied flora providing a plentiful habitat to many species of butterflies and birds, including Hornbills and Turacos, it is a paradise for botanists and ornithologists alike. There are almost 335 identified bird species, including hoopoe, grey parrot, ant thrush, Negro finch and one particularly worth noting is the Kibale forest thrush, which is endemic to Kibale forest.
