Chimpanzee habituation in Kibale National Park
Several Chimpanzee families have been separated from the larger population that habits the forest and have been habituated for study and research. Uganda chimpanzee habituation safaris offer a longer and closer interaction with the primates.
Chimpanzee habituation is a simple activity that does not require hiking, or trekking. It is only a deep attention to animals in animal psychology. Tourists are always amazed to learn how similar the Chimps are to humans in their feeding routines, patterns, the way they take care of their young and elderly, and in the way, they create order through clear family hierarchy. Chimpanzees are natural entertainers and very dramatic creatures you should miss on your safari in Uganda.
Chimpanzees may actually be the funniest creatures in Uganda’s wild parks. For visitors that would love a fascinating safari Uganda, full of discovery and laughter, Chimp habituation should be the first item on their itinerary.
