Chimpanzee Trekking in Uganda is one of the most popular Uganda tour activities. The Chimpanzee commonly shortened as Chimp is one of the primates found in Uganda. Chimpanzees are known to be the closest specie of apes to humans, sharing 98% of the genes that we also have. While on a Uganda Safari, Chimpanzee Trekking in Uganda can be done mainly in Kibale National Park. This park also hosts other primates including a variety of monkey species. Chimpanzee trekking in Uganda can be done at Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary which habituates these chimps.
The weight of a full grown adult male chimpanzee is about 35 to 70 kgs, with about 3 meters tall compared to a female with about 26 to 50 kgs and 2 to 4 feet tall. The life expectancy of Chimpanzees is at the age of 40 while those in captivity can stretch to 60. Efforts to conserve the chimps are widely acknowledged and supported. The Jane Goodall Foundation plays a big role in the conservation of the Chimpanzees and Gorillas in Uganda. African Pearl Safaris is proud to be associated with the Conservation of these primates.
