DAY 2 KIBALE FOREST NATIONAL PARK
After breakfast and a 25-minute drive to the park offices for briefing, go for a hiking through the Kibale Forest in search of chimpanzees and other primates. Kibale is inhabited by three large “communities” of chimps, each numbering more than 100 individuals. Each community has a complicated social structure. Chimps are very social, highly vocal, communicating with a large variety of sounds and gestures. The excitement as the whole group suddenly bursts into a cacophony of wild hooting is most entertaining. You will have one hour in their presence.
