To avoid disappointments - the place itself is not in the forest, but close to the local village Take your flashlight, pitch dark at night or at dawn But is still great place to stay 10min drive from Chimp Experience. I love the stylish tented accommodation - two bed "tent" under solid roof, with proper bathroom & socket to charge...

The 'tents' were beyond our expectations - more like little hotel rooms under canvas, complete with en suite! The service was exceptional (particularly a young man called Justice who served us most of our meals during our stay). The food was wonderful - and certainly plentiful! They catered for vegetarians no problem, with different options each meal time. The camp...

I just loved this unassuming place. It was a wonderful stay for visiting the chimps and walking through the countryside. This place is very nice and clean with wonderful outside sitting areas so you can watch the monkeys swing from branch to branch

We stayed here during our chimpanzee tracking and had a perfect time, Great food, very lovely people and a primate walk is just starting at the reception. We highly recommend this place. Every morning when we woke up we had the coffee already in front of our tent. Thanks for everything!!

The tented rooms here are excellent, plenty of space with a good shower and a very large and comfortable bed. The food was good and the dining area very relaxing. A The whole experience was excellent, even with the world's loudest frog just outside our tent

We stayed in a tented cabin which was a structure framed by a durable tent. Hardwood flooring, shower, toilet, and veranda made it a nice way for our first primate trek of the trip. Hotel staff provide juice and a wet towel upon arrival, and also orient guests to the meal times, operating times for generator and solar systems, and...

Lovely stay in a deluxe tent for two nights, the surroundings of the camp are brilliant and very rustic which adds to the experience. The food (breakfast and dinner) were excellent and always on time, with a good selection. The tents were clean and spacious, with hot running water available in the mornings and evenings. Can be slightly noisy through...

Stunning setting among the rainforest, you really are at one with nature here as monkeys swing in the trees above. There is a lovely nature walk (about 15 mins) which circles the camp. Rooms are spacious and characterful with the bonus of electricity (part time only) hot water and flushing loos. The food was really really nice and flavoursome, some...

I stayed here with two friends as part of a trip organised by Primate World Safaris. It's an incredible place. Everyone is wonderfully friendly, and the real magic comes from staying in the forest, surrounded by its sounds. We went for a short walk when we arrived, and were surprised and delighted to spot tens of monkeys within minutes! Lovely,...

A night in the jungle, in a tent, but with the maximum of confort and an excellent staff. What else could be asked? Food was also very good. The whole thing is like an adventure. The Bigodi wetland sanctuary is at 5 minutes only by car. I can only recommand Kibale Forest Camp to everyone passing by Kibale.
