Lake Nkuruba Campsite




Lake Nkuruba Nature Reserve and Community Campsite is one of the most successful ecotourism Projects within western Uganda and can be visited during Uganda safaris. If you are looking for a verdant place to relax while surrounded by nature, this Project will offer that and more.  You can be able to spend few nights to rest and unwind within the serene Camp with a number of monkeys and unwinding environment like no other.

We are a community project whose aim is to conserve a unique habitat through conservation, education and local resource development.

We offer free education regarding health, literacy and conservation issues for the community. Our ongoing project is to provide classrooms and school libraries in the local area.

Our forests have numerous Black and White Colobus and Red Colobus monkeys, a vast amount of bird life and if you’re lucky our hippo may visit you.

While staying at Lake Nkuruba Community Campsite, you can be able to enjoy several activities that include guided nature walks within Lake Nkuruba Nature Reserve, Chimpanzee tracking within the close-by Kibale Forest National Park, exploring one of the World’s most magnificent explosion crater Lakes. Tourists at this site relish close encounters with at least four species of indigenous primates including the endangered Ugandan Red-colobus monkeys, red-tailed monkeys, black and white colobus monkeys and vervet monkeys as well as other mammals such as squirrels and banded mongoose and reptiles especially cobras.

Dubbed the “place of monkeys”, the Lake Nkuruba Campsite is one of the few places to spot the black and white colobus monkeys thus the reason you have to visit during Uganda safaris.
