The Kanyanchu Primate Walking is Kibale's most loved activity. There are 13 species to be found, with a variety of diurnal monkeys. But the stars of the trail are the chimpanzees. The chances of finding Kanyanchu's Chimps are high since they have been tracked continuously since 1993. Guided walks begin at 8am and end at 2pm, and can last up to three hours depending on the factors.
You can observe chimpanzees at their natural habitat with the popular primate walk. Kanyanchu's groups have become accustomed to humans - some have been spotted for more than 25 years. The chance of finding them is 90%. The walks leave Kanyanchu Visitor Centre between 8.00, 11.00, and 14.00. They last between 2 and 5 hours. It is recommended to arrive early for registration and briefing. The contact time with the chimpanzees will be limited to an hour. Group size is limited at six people; participants must not be younger than 16 years old. Booking in advance is required.
The region is biologically diverse and provides shelter for 120 other mammals, including baboons, chimpanzees, and elephants. This forest hosts approximately 370 species, including 23 Albertine Rift endangereds.
The chimpanzee population explosion of approximately 1,500 individuals is perhaps the most prominent of Kibale's primates. Four of these communities are habituated to humans.
