Kibale National Park

Welcome To Kibale National Park

The Kibale Chimpanzee Project is based in Kibale National Park, just east of the Ruwenzori Mountains in south-western Uganda. The park, established in 1993, and managed by the Uganda Wildlife Authority, encompasses 795 square kilometres of primarily moist evergreen and semi-deciduous forest. Kibale’s rich ecosystem is highlighted by diverse populations of birds, butterflies, and mammals, including 13 primate species. Kibale is home to more than 1200 East African chimpanzees. Five chimpanzee communities have been fully or partly habituated to humans for research or tourism. The Ngogo Chimpanzee Project, follows two communities located in the center of the park. A large wildlife corridor links Kibale to Queen Elizabeth National Park, where herds of African elephants roam freely between both sanctuaries. While the park’s plethora of primates is undoubtedly its main draw, Kibale is also home to other (more elusive) animals such as leopard, buffalo, duiker, and bush pig. Bird lovers will be mesmerised by the park’s 325 recorded bird species and a hard day exploring is best topped off with a cup of coffee made from the park’s wild Robusta coffee tree. Kibale is highest at the park’s northern tip, which stands 1,590m above sea level. The lowest point is 1,100m on the floor of the Albertine Rift Valley to the south.
