Enjoy beautiful panoramic vista’s of Kibale National Park, ancient crater lakes, and the Rwenzori Mountains.

Owned and operated by a Ugandan family, Chimpanzee Forest Guest house was originally established in the 1950s, during Uganda’s colonial period, by the British District Commissioner and has been wonderfully cared for and maintained ever since. Guests can relax in a comfortably furnished lounge which features an excellent collection of colonial African literature dating back to the 1800’s.
