A visit to Kibale Forest National park in Kanyanchu along Kamwenge road led us to the awesome, lovely and cool primate lodge , part of the Great Lakes Safaris Uganda. As the Mazima Adventures Safaris Crew (what we normally call the team) moved about in the western part of Uganda; our main area was the beautiful Fortportal town though as adventurous souls, we decided to move to Kibale Forest National Park.
The distance from Fortportal town took us about 40minutes, on one of the best roads, well labelled with so many humps mainly because the area is habitat for some animals. The views were so natural, fresh and cool. Along the road; a few metres before the national park you come across wonderful flora and fauna, lake Nyabikere among others. As you get towards the park, you get to see some carefree primates chilling by the road like the bosses of the area. Into the park is the Kanyanchu visitors information centre where all information about the tour packages, guides’ can be found, then further inside is the beautiful Primate lodge.
Oh my, the hospitality of staff is just on another level, the cool breeze, the African look is another heaven. There we got a chance to liaise with a wonderful gentleman Wilson , so attentive and patient. He answered all our questions and offered us a tour around the place before we even requested for it. Before we got there we thought it was for only high end customers but interestingly, it caters for all. The cottages are so lovely, cool, so African and named according to some species in the park like Kingfisher bird, Francolin bird among others.
Besides the cottages are luxury tents and a tree house. The cottages are strategically located at some point residents get to see some primates pass by.
Generally, it was a wonderful experience as our friend Wilson explained to us. To be sincere I didn’t want to leave Kibale NP, but well all good things come to an end. Thanks to all that do their best to boast African tourism and the awesome Mazima Adventure Safaris team for the good work
