About Primate Lodge Kibale

Primate Lodge Kibale is situated in the heart of Kibale Forest National Park, a lush tropical rainforest that is home to thirteen different species of primates, including the chimpanzee.

Privately secluded in the jungle, this exclusive eco-friendly lodge features a tented camp, comfortable forest cottages and a unique Sky Tree House for the adventurous travellers.

The eight safari tents are raised on a wooden platform, with a private veranda overlooking the forest. Each of them is tastefully decorated in African style, with comfortable twin beds, large windows and en-suite bathroom.

Besidess the luxury safari tents, the lodge also features comfortable forest cottages, privately situated in the forest. They have their own veranda, spacious bedroom and en-suite bathroom.

The adventurous travellers are welcome to spend an exciting night high up in the tree in our unique Sky Tree House. It overlooks the scenic elephant wallow, so don't be surprised when forest elephants come to visit you at night!

Natural stone pathways lead to the main lodge with a spacious dining room, serving local and international meals. The adjacent well-stocked bar provides a fresh cup of coffee, cold beers or any other drink, while you enjoy the magical forest that encloses the lodge.

The open lounge area is decorated with comfortable large chairs, sofas and soft cushions, making it the ideal place to unwind and listen to the chattering of the red-tailed monkeys in the branches. In the slightly chilly evenings you can find shelter in a unique cave where a fire will be lit to warm yourself.

And as the night falls and you drift away to sleep by the peaceful sounds of nature, you might even hear the exciting trumpeting of the meandering elephants in the forest...

Activities in the surroundings are varied and limitless. Those who want to enjoy a primate walk can join the rangers for an exciting encounter with wild chimpanzees.

Or go in search of the Great Blue Turaco in Bigodi Swamp, explore the beauty of the surrounding Crater Lakes or take a hike at the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains.

We stayed in the Tree House for one night and enjoyed it immensely. The lodge staff, facilities and food were superb. We saw 2 elephants in the dark visiting the wallow that is within easy viewing distance. The bunk beds, 2 chairs and table were comfortable and the house was very cosy and clean.

We stayed 2 nights and 3 days. We did the Chimp trek and unfortunately did not see one. We were disappointed as that was the main reason for going there. We were told that as it was the end of the dry season the chimps were roaming far and wide for food.We also did the village Swamp Walk and saw lots of monkeys and birds. It was very enjoyable.We purchased local basket wear and trinkets to aid the orphanage. The lodge was well maintained, the food was delicious and abundant. The quiet was terrific. The staff was courteous and accommodating.
