"Fabulous tour of primates in Uganda"

Posted on Sat July 27, 2019.

I recently went on a week-long tour of Uganda primarily to see the monkeys and apes in that country. Everything worked out as expected, each hike was successful in finding the animals, the rangers were all familiar with their area and well-prepared to give information to tourists, and there was time after each hike to rest and relax. The driver/guide, Frank, was always on time, clearly knew his way around the country, was able to point out sights as we travelled, and at least once went out of his way to see a sight we would have missed otherwise. The accommodations were as expected or better at every stop. Even the weather co-operated - it was rainy season but it never rained during a hike.
It was a great trip and I'm so glad I went.
One recommendation: if you are interested in chimpanzees, be sure to book the five-hour habituation hike at Kibale which let's you see so much more of their life than the usual one-hour time allowed.
