Safari Overview: The Apes  Circuit 6 days Chimpanzee Gorilla Safaris

Kibale National Park is a primatologist’s dream. It hosts a population of more than 1,000 chimpanzees, of which one 80-strong community has been habituated to tourist visits, as well as half-a-dozen readily observed monkey species, including the acrobatic red colobus and black-and-white colobus, and the handsome L’Hoest’s monkey. Chimpanzees are an endangered species because they are rare and declining rapidly across African forests. International laws protect chimpanzees because they are threatened by extinction. Their main cause of decline is due to the activities of people  cultivating and farming their forest habitats. By doing our 6 Days Apes Circuits safari in Uganda will be contributing to their conservation. combining mountain Gorilla and Chimpanzee tracking safaris,  and tours are interesting,  these delightful apes, are more closely related to humans than to any other living creature, are tremendous fun to watch as they squabble and play in fruiting trees.
