Overview of the 3 Days Chimpanzee Habituation

Kibale National Park Uganda

3 Days Chimpanzee Habituation safari will make you think that spending one hour with chimps on a traditional chimpanzee tracking safari is exhilarating, but wait until you spend a whole day with these Chimps while on our 3 Day Chimp Habituation. The 3 Day Chimp Habituation (CHE) and or chimpanzee tracking safari is a great alternative to the 3 day gorilla trekking safari especially considering the cost.

You will spend almost ten hours in the jungle just following the movements, studying the habits, games and resting with the Chimpanzees. While Chimpanzee tracking, where you spend one hour with a habituated chimp group you pay US$200, for the habituation experience, you will spend US$250 only. When compared to the cost of a gorilla trekking permit of US$700, this amount is quite affordable for a budget traveler.
