Chimps

Although the gorilla trek has to be the main highlight, when it comes to outstanding moments, I thought the chimp trek was up there with the best of them. Kibale National Park has the biggest population of chimps on earth and is the best place to observe them. I was impressed with our ranger, a lovely and experienced lady who would be able to recognise any odours, sounds and tracks in the forest.

The chimp trek is a fantastic experience and is quite different from the gorilla trek as it involves being very vigilant and fast to understand where the chimps are and how to find them. As we finally heard them screaming we were absolutely thrilled when we saw them coming towards us. Only a few metres away, they didn’t seem bothered by our presence. As they slowly merged back into the forest after their brief procession, our day was made!
