Kibale national park
East of the Rwenzori mountain, the landscape is dotted with volcanic crater lakes and carpeted with tea plantations and tropical forest. The park is best known for its primates which include Uganda’s largest population of chimpanzees – an estimated 1450 -the localized red colobus, and L’Hoest’s monkey. Other large mammals, such as elephant, buffalo and giant forest hog are present. Chimpanzee tracking is the main activity, while birdwatchers are drawn to the park for the community-run Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary which has a bird list of 335 species.
