Best time to visit Uganda for a primates safari
Still talking Uganda primates safaris for 2024-2025, Uganda can be visited throughout the year because sits on the equator with an average altitude of about 1,000m throughout the year even during what Ugandans call the rainy season in October, November, March April, and May, it is still warm enough yes it may rain for few hours but the sun will still come out which means no weather condition can stop tourists to continue with their activities.
Why primates safaris in Uganda-Africa
Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is home to an estimated 65 percent of the total world’s population of mountain gorillas, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park a home to the largest number of golden monkeys in Africa, Mgahinga also has one mountain gorilla so you can aurally trek both mountain gorillas and golden monkeys in one park while Kibale forest national park is home to the largest population of chimpanzees in the world hence its name “the primates capital of the world”
Currently, Uganda has over 20 habituated mountain families that are open for tourism, only 8 people are allowed to visit each gorilla family daily, now this means only 8 permits are issued daily per gorilla family which means the total number of 160 gorilla permits available daily for both Bwindi impenetrable forest national park and Mgahinga gorilla national park. Currently, a gorilla permit costs only $700 per person which allows spending one full hour viewing mountain gorillas in their natural habitat, I must say that mountain gorilla tracking is worth every second spent watching man’s closest cousins as their young ones play to jump up and down, seeing them as they interact right in front of you.
Chimpanzee tracking in Uganda
Apart from Kibale Forest National Park, there are a few other places in Uganda where to trek chimpanzees including Kyambura Gorge in Queen Elisabeth National Park, Budongo Forest in Murchison Falls National Park, and Kalinzu Forest Reserve among others.
Uganda is the best place to trek chimpanzees our closest relatives’ chimpanzees share 99 percent of their DNA with humans while mountain gorillas share 98 percent with humans, the most popular place in Uganda and Africa to trek chimps is Kibale Forest National Park followed by Budongo forest and Kyambura Gorge. When you compare chimpanzee and gorilla trekking, chimpanzee tracking is less difficult because trekking is done on flat ground while gorilla trekking is done in the mountains, and also permit price for chimps is more affordable compared to that of gorillas, chimpanzee permit costs only $200 per person while gorilla permit costs $700 per person.
Can I combine wildlife safari with primate tracking in Uganda?
Apart from being the primate capital of the world, Uganda has several other wildlife making it the best to for a combination safari of both primates and wildlife safari in Africa, so yes one can easily combine Uganda gorilla tracking with wildlife safari
For the last few years ago most tourists would combine Uganda with Kenya or Tanzania to create East African safaris that bring together mountain gorillas with a mix of savannah wildlife which would mean that after a few days of gorilla tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park or in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, and chimpanzee trekking in Kibale forest national park or in Kyambura gorge, tourists would cross to back to Kenya or Tanzania to see great migration of big herds of wildebeests, zebras, gazelles among others running against the lions, leopards, Haeners and cheetahs among other in the Maasai Mara and in Serengeti.
