  • Unpleasant experience today - unfortunately. Trekking guide Deo led us through the rainforest for 4 hours. without the slightest sign of chimps. at 5 p.m. wanted to stop. were already out of the woods. then a short sound from the chimpanzees. for half a minute we saw 2-3 animals. and he charged us full price for it. 435,000 UGX. pure rip off. next time prefer Kibale NP again. there you get at least 1 hour full view of the animals. Budongo Forest Reserve is too unsafe! very bad experience at this Forest with chimpanzee Trekking & especially the Guide!
  • Full of sweet moments while enjoying the primate lifestyle...
