Day 2: Forest walk in Chimpanzee trails.
The Forest Walk experience offers you a chance to see with a group of juvenile chimpanzees on a one hour walk through their forest habitat in the early morning. A group of four visitors take park in each forest walk, always escorted by trained Chimpanzee Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation Trust (CSWCT) staff for your safety and explanation. You will be in the group of several chimpanzees ranging in age from 5 years to 8 years of age and you will have direct contact as we familiarize them to life in the forest and possible future discharge program back to the wild.
There are very particular instructions on clothing, cameras, glasses, and behavior when signing up for this unique opportunity as these chimpanzees are familiar with humans and they will play-bite, climb on you, grab your glasses, and pull your hair or even just walk along holding your hand. And that’s where the fun just begins! Depending upon how manageable the chimps are, there is no guarantee on activity duration.You will return back to the lodge for lunch, then get back on the boat to transfer you back to Entebbe from where you will find your driver who is to transfer you back to Kampala or Entebbe airport.
