Kibale National Nark covers an area of 760 sq km and has a variety of primates estimated at 13 species that include red, black and white colobus monkeys, blue monkeys, baboons and a large number of chimpanzees which are a must-view when ones visit the park. Fascinating to see is the dense rain forest surroundings. The park has a population of more than 1000 Chimpanzees, over 340 species of birds, 27 species of frogs and toads and 14 species of snakes.
