Depart to Kibale National Park in the morning at 7:00am after breakfast, pick up at your lodge/hotel or place of residence and briefing on the safari before we drive westwards to Fort Portal to the Kibale Forest National Park. Travelling on Tarmac road and Maram road, you pass through different villages where you see people, who work their crops like sorghum, millet, beans and maize and banana plantations. The lush rolling hills of this region provide good photograph opportunities. As you approach Fort Portal in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains, you enter Uganda’s famous tea plantation region, pass through Fort Portal, and continue to Kibale Forest, one of the great African rainforest research reserves. This forest is famed for the variety of primates found here and it is a terrific area for watching bird species. This rural Ugandan town (Fort Portal) is locally famous for its weaving and basketry, and we can make a stopover for briefing and photographs of the local art.
In the afternoon we visit Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary which is located at the Eastern edge of Kibale forest and maintained by the local communities, which are surrounding the park. You will be able to spot birds like the great blue turaco, primates like blue monkeys, baboons, otters, mongooses, and antelopes, bush bucks, bush pigs among others.
Lunch and Dinner at the Lodge.
