Budongo Forest Uganda

Budongo Forest, nestled in northwestern Uganda, is a treasure trove of biodiversity and a haven for primate enthusiasts and birdwatchers alike. The forest is home to one of the largest populations of chimpanzees in East Africa, offering visitors the opportunity to embark on captivating chimpanzee tracking expeditions. Trekking through the dense canopy under the guidance of experienced guides, visitors may encounter these intelligent primates in their natural habitat, observing their social interactions and behaviors up close. Beyond chimpanzees, Budongo Forest is also teeming with other primate species, including black-and-white colobus monkeys, red-tailed monkeys, and olive baboons, providing ample opportunities for primate sightings and wildlife photography.

In addition to primate tracking, Budongo Forest offers a range of activities to immerse visitors in its rich biodiversity. Guided nature walks unveil the forest’s remarkable flora and fauna, with opportunities to spot a diverse array of bird species, butterflies, and other forest inhabitants. Birdwatchers will be delighted by the chance to glimpse numerous forest-dwelling species, including the iconic African grey parrot and the elusive Nahan’s francolin.
