When having a Uganda Safari, you cannot forget Chimpanzee Trekking. Chimpanzee trekking is another primate experience that gives you a chance to marvel at similarities between primates and humans as you observe and interact with them in their natural habitats.
The trekking experience to the chimpanzee habitat also gives you a memorable adventure and scenery experience.
Chimpanzee trekking is done all year round in different locations and trekking permits are acquired from the issuing Authority of the trekking destination.
The chimpanzee trekking permit fees vary from location to location and for Kibale National Park trekking a permit fee is 200 USD per person per trek.
