Kibale National Park, Uganda

Uganda’s supreme park in terms of richness in diversity of plant species, as well as having the highest density of primate species in the world, Kibale was initially set aside as a wildlife corridor especially for forest elephants migrating between the Queen Elizabeth National Park and the northern parks such as the Kabalega Falls National Park.

Kibale is a region of lakes, marshes and grasslands and its slopes contain several distinct types of forests (lowland tropical rainforest, deciduous forest and montane forests), perfect for its arboreal inhabitants.

Ancient forests of trees over 50m in height, and equally magnificent buttress roots form a natural playground for the chimpanzees, red-tailed monkeys, diademed monkeys, blue monkeys, white cheeked mangabeys, olive baboons, black & white and red colobus; and the flowers and figs attract over 300 species of tropical birds and butterflies, which add even more colour and vibrancy to this enchanting forest park.

The forest’s other inhabitants include buffalos, waterbucks, hippos, warthogs and giant forest hogs, bush pigs, civets and genets and the shy and reclusive forest elephant.
