Uganda Birding and Chimpanzee Tracking Tour

In this seven day Uganda birding tour, a healthy list of cool African rain forest birds and detailed observation of Chimpanzees way of life are targeted. Technically, Chimp habituation is a whole day activity although you can retire at leisure. You spend more time with the chimps compared to the tracking experience, you, therefore, get exposed to the detailed ways of life of man’s closest relatives.
