3 DAY CHIMP HABITUATION IN KIBALE… Kibale

Description

Overview

If you think that spending one hour with chimps on a traditional chimpanzee tracking safari is exhilarating, wait till you spend a whole day with these relatives of ours. The 3 Day chimp habituation experience (CHE) and or chimpanzee tracking safari is a great alternative to the 3 day gorilla trekking safari especially considering the cost.

For almost 10 hours in the jungle following their movements, habits, games and resting with them, you let go of US$220 per person. While Chimpanzee tracking, where you spend one hour with a habituated chimp group, you pay US$150. Comparing both to a gorilla trekking permit of US$600, that’s quite affordable for a budget traveller you know.

But, what is the chimp habituation experience?

Chimp habituation experience is that activity where travellers are allowed to join researchers (By the Uganda Wildlife Authority) on their day’s quest to habituate a chimpanzee group in their natural habitat by following the chimp group throughout their daily routines, from break of dawn when the wake to the end of day when they build their nests and retire for the day.

One does not only stop and seeing and photographing chimps, but he/she participates in all activities involved in habituating our closest relatives the chimps. A whole day of such experience is definitely worth doing on your Uganda safari.
