The most favorite of Kibale’s walks embarks on from the Kanyanchu visitor’s center at 08:00 and 14:00, this lasts for 2-3 hours. Chimpanzees are the most sought after primate by visitors, but you should look out for the black and white colobus, red tailed monkeys or grey checked mangabey. Chimpanzees are well as humans share over 98.7% of their DNA. However these being wild animals, chances of spotting these chimps are not always guaranteed although they are 95% within Kibale Forest, hence making it the most perfect destination in East Africa for chimp tracking.
