This nature reserve is one of the most important in Uganda, with a very high population of animals, including elephants and hippos, so it's easy to fine them. It is also quite easy to find lions, if you are lucky. I booked with Katunguru Safaris, located in a small town near Kasese, although I recommend booking with an agency that is easier, safer and better quality. But it will also be more expensive. I did not have much money and I hired a very nice guy I met in Katunguru. The downside is that, instead of having a four-by-four vehicle, sutable for the terrain, the guy had a Toyota Corolla, with a cracked windscreen and damaged battery (which I discovered while looking for a family of lions, when he stopped the car and we had to push it to start it), but he made up for with his charm, his knowledge and flexibility for my schedule. And doing a safari while sitting on the edge of the windscreen, I personally found quite charming. In the park is the Mweya peninsula where you can stay and hire a boat, I would recommend it to everyone. In the Peninsula, the animals are very well accustomed to humans so they let you get very close to them, but you should always do so very carefully because they are still wild animals and can give you a bit of a scare.
The Kibale National Park is a 795sqkm of forest paradise.
Most visitors in Kibale National Park come for the chance to track chimpanzees on the early morning or late afternoon guided walks through the forest in the central Kanyanchu area.
The trained rangers provide information to visitors during the walks about the plants and trees and their various traditional uses.
The walks offer a rare opportunity to see and learn about butterflies , birds, and the wonders of the tropical rain forest.
