Chimps Nest


... is located in the Kibale Forest area of western Uganda.

Unlike most of the other lodges in this area, this place is partially inside the forest, which makes it quite atmospheric.

The lodge itself consists of a large block and thatch mess with decent bar, dining and lounge areas. Guests can stay either in reasonably comfortable cottages or rather rickety but spectacular treehouses within the forest canopy itself.

As well as chimp tracking, activities include birding, mountain bike trails and night forest walks.

Chimps Nest is a rather funky option, but with a pretty mixed bag of guest reviews out there on the web, so perhaps best suited to more forgiving and outdoorsy guests.
