Kibale Primate Lodge
is located in the Kibale Forest
area of western Uganda
Unlike most of the other lodges in this area, this place is actually inside the forest, making it one of the most atmospheric and convenient for chimp tracking.
The lodge itself consists of a large semi-circular mess with decent bar, dining and lounge areas. Guest accommodation is relatively simple. The best is probably the eight large safari tents raised on decks with private bathrooms. There are also some more basic rooms and a campground, plus an interesting tree-house.
The main activity in the area is chimp tracking, supplemented by other walks in and around the forest.
Kibale Primate Lodge is enhanced by its position but slightly disadvantaged by the simplicity of its rooms.
