Kibale Forest Camp

★ ★ ★

The Kibale Forest Camp in Uganda nestles just outside of the southern area of the magnificent Kibale National Park.

Guests are accommodated in the heart of nature in ten safari-style tents. Exciting activities await which include the unforgettable Chimpanzee tracking, the Chimpanzee habituation experience, a visit to the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary as well as bird watching, night walks and the Exploration of the Crater Lakes.

This extraordinary camp in the Kibale Forest National Park provides an affordable, classic canvas experience when staying in one of the camp's unique African safari tents which are tucked away in the lush forest. The 7 Tents provide comfortable beds as well as a bedside table. A power outlet to charge electrical equipment is also available.

The Kibale tents are under a thatched roof. Guests share a communal ablution block with flushing toilets and showers. Bed linen, bedding as well as towels are provided. The 10 African Safari tents are furnished with double or twin beds. Each Safari Tent offers a private en-suite bathroom with toilet, dressing room as well as a hot water shower. Guests are welcome to watch the birdlife from their outdoor verandah.

The camp's restaurant and bar are in a wooden, thatched building. Its open structure blends in with the natural surroundings overlooking the lush garden. Breakfast, lunches as well as dinners are served in this unique wilderness dining venue. Set menus are on offer, and special dietary requests can be catered for if notice is provided. Guests may enjoy a fresh cup of coffee or tea on the terrace of their tent when waking up.

The activities which are available in the Kibale National Park for travellers are varied and exciting, ranging from chimpanzee tracking in the forest to bird watching in the swamps. Visitors are encouraged to explore the beautiful crater lakes and to enjoy a hike through the tea estates.

The Kibale Forest Camp nestles in an evergreen forest, outside the southern part of Uganda's Kibale National Park. Bordering the Magombe swamp which is known for the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary, the camp is ten minutes drive away from the Kanyanchu Visitor Center, the location where the Chimpanzee track begins.

The Kibale National Park stretches over about 795km and ranges between 1100 and 1600 meters in elevation. Despite primarily featuring evergreen rain forest, this national park is home to a diverse variety of landscapes. This evergreen forest is a habitat for many animals such as the 13 species of primates.
