Primate Lodge

Set at the heart of the Kibale Forest National Park, Primate Lodge offers guests a true jungle adventure. Enclosed by thick tropical forest this is the perfect place from which to track chimpanzees as well as many other primates, situated only a 5 minute walk from the Kibale National Park Headquarters. The rustic camp affords wonderful views of the dense ethereal rainforest and is quietly secluded, offering an authentic experience.

There are a variety of accommodation options on offer for guests. There are seven forest cottages, all of which hold twin beds. Guests can relax on the small veranda or in the sitting area and listen to the many sounds of the forest. Cottages also possess en suite bathrooms with a flush toilet and shower. There are also 8 Meru style tents on offer. The tents are shielded by thatch roofs overhead and each is raised on a wooden platform with a small veranda area and include en suite facilities. The final accommodation option is a treehouse, a 10 minute walk from the main lodge. With occasional visits from forest elephants and with a secluded location this could be a romantic option for couples or honeymooners. Inside the treehouse is quite basic and washing facilities are located at the bottom of the tree. The main lodge offers a restaurant and bar and lounge, with free WiFi.
