Chimpanzee trekking is another must to activity while in Uganda. Depending on your interests, Chimpanzee trekking is the second best thing to gorilla trekking when it comes to primate tours in Uganda. Today we look at the advantage of trekking Uganda chimpanzees twice in Kibale National Park, Budongo Forest or Kyambura Gorge in Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Advantages of trekking Uganda chimpanzees twice
Trekking Uganda chimpanzees twice in Budongo forest or Kibale National Park is possible as long as you buy two chimpanzee permits from Uganda wildlife Authority. Chimpanzee trekking is a half day activity in Uganda. There is the morning session that starts at 8:00 am and ends at 12:30pm and the afternoon session begins at 12:30pm with briefing until late. With such an arrangement, trekking Uganda chimpanzees twice becomes easy since one can choose to trek both in the morning and afternoon. Alternatively, you could choose to do this in two days so that you have enough time to relax. The advantage of trekking Uganda chimpanzees twice is that you have two chances with habituated chimpanzees in the wild. If the first trek was not as good as you wishes, you can then give it a try with the second trek. The other advantage of trekking chimps twice is that chimpanzees behave differently in the morning and afternoon. Trekking Uganda chimpanzees twice will therefore provide an opportunity for you to compare their behaviors. For those interested in staying with chimpanzees longer, we also recommend chimpanzee habituation experience which is a whole day experience and allows you to stay with chimpanzees for the whole day instead of just two hours that you would get if you paid for two chimpanzees treks. On the commercial part of this, trekking Uganda chimpanzees is expensive since two chimpanzee permits cost USD300 compared to Habituation permit that costs USD220.00 for the whole day.
