Kibale Forest National Park – home to the world’s greatest concentration of primates
The 13 types of primates include the common chimpanzee, and several species of Central African monkey: the Uganda mangabey (Lophocebus ugandae), the Ugandan red colobus (Procolobus tephrosceles) and the L’Hoest’s monkey. Other primates found in Kibale Forest National Park include Olive Baboons, the Black-and-white colobus (Colobus guereza) and the blue monkey (Cercopithecus mitis). If we add the human primates at the forest-edge, let’s make that 14 🙂
Just outside the park, Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary is habitat for 138 bird species. The boardwalk through the swamp is well worth a visit!
