Today in the morning you will trek the exuberant chimpanzee families in the Kibale forest. Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from tree branches in the canopy high above the forest floor, is a thrilling experience.

Though they can be difficult to spot, you will be in no doubt of their presence as the forest is alive with their noisy calls. In the afternoon, explore the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary.
