Chimpanzee Habituation Experience allows you to accompany the Kibale’s researchers as they follow chimpanzees during their daily activities, thereby getting them used to human presence without altering their natural behaviors.
This is an all day and early visitors may be able to see the spectacular scene of chimps de-nesting, feeding, copulating, hunting, breast feeding, resting, patrolling and displaying until they build new nests and retire for the night around 7.00pm.
The community undergoing habituation has more than 350 individuals and has been habituated for over past five years and is still undergoing the process.
Your driver guide will drive you to the park by 6am for a briefing before heading to the park, and you there after head to the forest to meet these giants while they are still in their nest so as to observe them de- nesting.
A packed lunch and enough water will be arranged with your hotel that you may have booked with as you will need to take along.
You will then observe the entire social life of the chimps as you will keep following them along the trails or even sometimes move along the thickets so as to keep them on truck.
Habituation is a full day activity with the chimps, but however you may decide to get a relief and return before the end of the day basing on the entire group decision and satisfaction.
You may also be able to see the chimps nest and some other group doing their day tracking may come along in case they land to the chimp group you are habituating.
After chimps nesting for their late evening nap, there after you can say bye bye to the chimpanzee as you will be led by the guide out of the forest and later you head to your booked accommodation.
