Chimpanzee Tracking

Tracking the Chimpanzees is a very interesting experience. Get your walking shoes on as we move through bush and jungle to spend one hour with our fascinating relatives. Chimpanzees can be found in Uganda (Kibale Forest, Budongo, Kalinzu Forest and the Kyambura Gorge), Rwanda (Nyungwe Forest) and Tanzania (Gombe Stream and Mahale Mountains)

Kazinga Tours offers short trips to the Chimpanzees in Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania and also as part of a complete roundtrip to one of these countries. In the short trips to the chimps we drive or fly to the Chimpanzee parks. See our TOURS to the chimps below:

More Chimpanzee Tracking

Chimpanzees are our closest relatives and share more than 98% of their genetic code with us.

To see them up close in their own environment is an experience you will never forget. Chimpanzees can be found in:

Uganda:

  • Kibale Forest
  • Budongo Forest (near Murchison Falls)
  • Kalinzu Forest
  • Kyambura Gorge (Queen Elizabeth National Park)

Rwanda:

  • Nyungwe Forest

Tanzania:

  • Gombe Stream
  • Mahale Mountains

The best places to see them are Kibale Forest and Gombe Stream, where the chances of seeing the chimps are more than 95% in Kibale Forest and Gombe Stream

In Kibale Forest it is also possible to do the Habituation Experience instead of the chimpanzee tracking. During the habituation experience you can spend the whole day with the chimps, instead of 1 hour.

What to bring

  • Wear shoes with good traction, suitable for steep muddy slopes
  • Some people feel more comfortable when wearing long sleeved clothes when moving through the jungle
  • Carry rain gear, as the weather can be unpredictable
  • Carry enough water and food
  • Carry binoculars

When taking photos, please note your subjects are black animals in dim light and flash is not allowed. So you need to use 400-1200 ISO settings on your digital camera. A bright lens and/or monopod can also be very helpful. Please go to the photography part of our website for detailed information about wildlife photography or ask Vincent our own wildlife  photographer for free personal advise: vincent@kazingatours.com
