Kyambura Gorge Chimpanzee tracking – Queen Elizabeth National Park
Kyambura Gorge chimpanzee tracking – The Kyambura Gorge experience is more than discovering chimpanzees in their natural environment: it teaches visitors about the ecosystems of Kyambura Gorge’s atmospheric “underground” rain forest, including vegetation types; bird identification and behavior; and chimp and monkey ecology.
Although chimp sightings are not guaranteed, visitors stand a pretty good chance of hearing and seeing our distant cousins as they are habituated. Tours last between one and three hours and start at 8am and 2pm daily. Kyambura gorge is located in Queen Elizabeth National Park southwestern Uganda and is the one of the places where primates reside. We normally advise our clients interested in gorilla tracking and chimp walks to visit kyambura gorge for this experience since queen Elizabeth National Park is closer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Best time to with Kyambura Gorge
Although it’s regarded as a year-round activity, the best time to visit Kyambura gorge for chimpanzee trekking is during the country’s two dry seasons: January and February and from June to September.
