Kibale National Park was gazetted in 1932 and is located in western Uganda, covering about 795 km². This park is one of Africa’s foremost research sites for chimpanzees and other primates. Kibale’s southern border adjoins Queen Elizabeth National Park to create a 180 km wildlife corridor.
Kibale is one of the best safari destinations in Africa for chimpanzee trekking in a stunning tropical rainforest. It also is home to other wildlife such as L’Hoest’s monkeys, red colobus monkeys, black-and-white colobuses, red-tailed monkeys, blue monkeys, olive baboons, golden cats, red and blue duikers, and bush babies.
