Kibale Forest Camp

Kibale Forest Camp is a cozy budget accommodation located next to the Kibale National Park boundary and a 10-minute drive from the Kanyanchu Visitor Center where chimp trekking begins. The camp is surrounded by a lush green forest and borders the Magombe Swamp, which is home to the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary.

Kibale Forest Camp has a range of comfortable accommodation options to suit your budget. This includes the canvas experience of 12 African safari-style tents nestled in the lush forest, as well as thatched non-self-contained tents. Each African safari-style tent has its own private ensuite bathroom, complete with an eco-friendly flush toilet, dressing room, and hot water shower.

From the comfort of your tent, you can capture the thrill of a howling black and white colobus or listen to the wood owl calling his partner. Get lost in the smells and sounds of the forest, spot primates swinging through the trees, and watch rare birds and beautiful butterflies flutter around.

The lodge’s bar and restaurant are housed in a lovely open wooden grass-thatched structure that blends in with the surroundings and overlooks a lush colorful garden.

Kibale Forest Camp offers a wide range of activities, from chimp tracking in the forest to birding in the swamps. Explore the crater lakes, go for a hike through the tea estates, or take a stroll to the stunning Mahoma Falls. During village walks, immerse yourself in the culture of the local communities that live near the park.

Kibale Forest Camp is located 47 kilometers from Kibale Forest Corridor Game Reserve, 323 kilometers from Kampala City, and 69 kilometers from the nearest airport (Kasese Airport)
