Visit to Kalinzu was included in our tour package so I cannot comment on the price.
Time: ~3-4 hours in total. I can't remember exactly how much time we spent on the trek, but it took us about an hour and a half to find...More
I did a trek with a guide to look for the chimpanzees. I had heard from a friend that my chances of seeing them were 50:50 but that was back when he had lived in Uganda and few years ago. My tour guide told me...More
