Uganda Safaris learning about chimps
Chimps are among the global conservation concerns, many thanks to Jane for doing a lot of researchers and initiating many into this as it had it’s genesis in the Gombe National Park in northern Tanzania, they are mainly found in rain forests and wet savannas. While they spend equal time on land and in trees, they do most of their feeding and sleeping in trees, they are most of the time arboreal. In Uganda they are mostly tracked in The KIbale Forest National Park and The Kyambura Gorge, a wildlife reserve that is part of Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda, more tracking in done in the Semliki Valley and the Budongo Forest south of Murchison Falls National Park which is the largest in Uganda. On any Uganda Safari, chimps are highly featured and among the highlights of any wildlife – primate tour in Uganda. For Rwanda safaris, we always take our guests to Nyungwe National Park.
It is incredible that chimpanzees use large sticks and branches as clubs or throw them at enemies like leopards and humans which humans would do as well in real essence. Chimps supplement their diets with meat, such as young antelopes or goats. Their most frequent victims, however, are other primates such as young baboons, red then the black and white colobus, and blue monkeys on our Uganda primate safaris, we will always have great views and learning of the above, just come with us, and the rewards of nature are just more than you think!!
