Primate Lodge Kibale
Monkey Lodge The Kibale Forest National Park is a favorite among tourists. Its proximity to the park and the start of the chimp trekking track is its main lure. The lodge, which is integrated into the forest, maintains a sense of excitement since you are surrounded by the vibrant sights and sounds of the forest.
What makes Primate Lodge special?
Primate Lodge attracts visitors mostly because of its proximity to Kibale Forest National Park and the trailhead for chimpanzee trekking, which is only a short walk away from the lodge. Staying inside the park and anticipating your exploration the following day might be exciting. Colobus and velvet monkeys frequently enter the lodge’s grounds through the bushes.
Fortunately, the lodge offers decent quality, mid-range to upscale lodging (depending on the type of cottage you select), so the location is not the only consideration. Kibale makes the most of its secluded location in the park in a variety of endearing ways. Each cottage has a fantastic view of the forest because many are constructed on elevated platforms, and there are also viewing decks and a private eating place in a treehouse. The main terrace has an open campfire.
