Kibale Forest National Park

Size 795 sq Km
In the west, near fort portal

Getting there and away

Fort portal lies 294km from Kampala along a mostly surfaced direct road, or an hours drive from Kasese (near Queen Elizabeth National Park). Kanyankyu Visitors centre, 35km from Fort portal, reached via a dirt road and is accessible on public transport.

Kibale National Park is an amazing place for all the family to visit, and relatively easy to get to.


Chimp tracking and other guided forest walks, even night walks. Birders shouldn’t miss Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary, a superb community development fringing the park. A field of beautiful crater lakes lies between Fort Portal and Kibale forest.

Visiting Time; Any time of the Year.
