Kibale Forest National Park is known as the primate capital of Uganda with 13 species of primates and notable among these is our closest relative, the Chimpanzee. While bird watching in the forest, the noise from the Chimpanzees cannot be ignored making chimpanzee tracking one of those activities you cannot miss out.
This is the place with the most successful attempts of seeing the secretive Green-breasted Pitta. The search for the Green-breasted Pitta just like any other pittas starts quite early as you listen out to the call during its displays.
Other birds include: Black Bee-eater, Afep Pigeon, Blue-shouldered Robin-Chat, Brown Illadopsis, Grey Apalis and many others. The Bigodi wetlands at the edges of Kibale provide great opportunities of birding with forest edge species as well as riverine species.
The birding in Bigodi wetlands is hinged on helping the community appreciate and benefit from conservation and tourism. There are several walks organised by the community guides that take you through some of the African traditions.
