Chimpanzee trekking safaris in Uganda and Rwanda – In what terms should we think of these beings, non human yet possessing very human-like characteristics with 98% human DNA. How then should we treat them? If you look straight and deep into a chimpanzee’s eyes, an intelligent self-assured personality looks back at you, if they are animals, what must we be? Doubtlessly, Uganda is the best premier destination for chimpanzee trekking in the whole of Africa; it is home to over 5,000 chimps than any other country in East Africa.
Several chimpanzee trekking destinations offer visitors authentic primate experience. It is also in Uganda that a tourist can spend one whole day studying the chimpanzee behaviors during chimpanzee habituation experience. Chimpanzee trekking can be done in the destinations of Kibale forest national park which happens to be home to over 13 species of Primates, Budongo forest, Kalinzu forest, and Kyambura George among others.
