CHIMPANZEE TRACKING AND PRIMATES IN UGANDA

Uganda is a home to 20 (twenty) primate species with Kibale forest national park having the highest density in all of Africa. Kibale national park alone has thirteen (13) primate species, the chimpanzees-pan troglodytes having the highest concentration making Kibale “the primate capital” and hence a premier destination in East Africa. Over 60% of forest covers in Uganda have primates, therefore primate lovers will find Uganda as the best country to see primates in great numbers. In fact, about 5000 primates are living in all forest covers of Uganda with Kibale alone having 1500 chimpanzees. Indeed, this being a primate world.

Besides the chimpanzees as one major primate destination, there are other rare primates such as the golden monkeys, L’hoest monkeys, grey checked mangabey, red tailed monkeys, blue monkeys, red colobus, black and white colobus monkeys and many more that can be found in all Uganda forest covers.
