Located in Murchison Falls National Park Budongo Forest Reserve is 793 square kilometers of which only 53% forest and the rest grassland. Budongo Forest boasts of a high biopersity with 24 species if small animals 9 of which are primates, 465 species of trees and shrubs, 359 species of birds, 289 species of butterflies and 130 species of moths. The forest is renowned for its high number of mahogany trees and chimpanzees. The forest is believed to contain some 600-700 chimpanzees.

As a result of this great biopersity two eco-tourism sites have been set and optimized for tour activities – Kaniyo Padidi and Busingiro eco tourism sites. These two sites have chimpanzees that have been habituated for chimpanzee tracking. Trail networks have been established for nature walks. You get an up-close view of the mahogany trees, iron wood trees and other vegetation.

In addition to the chimpanzees and other primate species such as monkeys, one can also view several bird species such as Chocolate-backed kingfisher, the White-thighed Hornbill and Puvel’s illadiposis found nowhere else in East. The area is relatively flat and thus easy to trek.

You will observe these delightful apes and may also get an opportunity to participate in the chimpanzee habituation process that will give more interaction with man closest relatives. The habituation process involves among other activities feeding them and mimicking their different actions as they do yours. We end this memorable wildlife encounter at around 12:00 pm.
