Queen Elizabeth National Park is understandably Uganda's most popular tourist
destination. The park's diverse ecosystems, which include sprawling savanna, shady,
humid forests, sparkling lakes and fertile wetlands, make it the ideal habitat for
classic big game, ten primate species including chimpanzees and over 600 species of birds.
Queen Elizabeth National Park is among of the most remarkable national parks within Uganda for outstanding Wildlife as well as Bird-life, it is also a perfect place to enjoy chimpanzee tracking / trekking done within the Kyambura Gorge where there are several habituated Chimpanzees. The scenery within this gorge is very spectacular and there are several other mammals plus birds to be seen as you start out in the morning on your chimpanzee trekking voyage. One has to make a booking a day before trekking.
Chimps normally stay in groups known as troops, of about 30 – 80 individuals. The large groups consist of smaller, very supple groups of fewer members, possibly all females, or all males or at times mixed. Their main food are leaves and they spend most of their
time on the ground. They are quadrupedal, so they walk fast on all their four limbs with their fingers half-flexed so as to support the great weight of the fore-quarters on their knuckles. Their shelters are nests which they build in just minutes through
bending branches and they set them high in the trees which helps them to rest duing
midday and sleep at night. One can trek chimpanzee at a low cost so Summer Tours and
Travel Ltd offers tour packages to this park, and activity.
