Kibale National Park

Established in 1993, Kibale National Park lies in western Uganda, protecting much of the moist evergreen and semi-deciduous forest that was once logged. Covering an area of more than 750 square miles, the national park guards natural plant and primate species while serving as a popular ecotourism and safari destination.

Apart from common chimpanzees and a dozen other primate species, animals here include leopards, wild pigs, mongooses, parrots and hornbills. Elephants travel between Kibale and adjoining Queen Elizabeth National Park.
