Start the 3rd day of the Uganda Experiential Safari with breakfast and travel to Kibale Forest National Park in western Uganda. You will be driven through a beautiful countryside of rolling hills and plains dotted with homesteads, gardens, and plantations of Bananas and tea. This is a 5-6 hour journey with lunch en route and you will get to the Park in the early afternoon hours.
You will check-in at the lodge of your booking for a short rest after which you will visit a nearby forest swamp to see primates like black and white colobus monkeys, L’Hoest monkeys, grey-cheeked mangabey, red-tailed monkeys, bushbabies, pottos, and other forest animals.
Expect to see a variety of birds like the yellow-spotted nicator, rumped tinker bird, little greenbul, green breasted pitta, the crowned eagle, black bee-eater, and the rare great blue turaco. At the eastern edge of Kibale forest is Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary which is maintained by the local community.
