"This short break offers an unforgettable adventure deep into western Uganda’s wilderness boasting prolific wildlife. Explore Kibale Forest National Park, with an area of 766km². This tropical forest is in the hinterland of the Albertine Rift, and is rich in primates (13 recorded species) and approximately 355 bird species. A network of shady trails showcases a variety of endemic bird and butterfly species as well as an impressive assortment of flora and fauna. Top of the bill are our endearingly fascinating cousins – the chimpanzees, but you can also expect to see small mammals and of course, enjoy the ubiquitous chorus of birdsong.
Journey through the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary, a fine example of conservation and tourism having a direct benefit at grassroots level. All money raised from the trail is used for community projects in Bigodi such as the creation of a small local library and the construction of schools. The trail through the swamp offers some of the best bird watching in East Africa, as well as a bountiful supply of butterflies, small mammals and primates.
Travellers will also have the opportunity to visit the Amabere Caves, lying in a hilly area 8km west of Fort Portal, dotted with crater lakes. The full name of the caves is Amabere ga Nyinamwiru – ‘Breasts of Nyinamwiru’ – referring to a live stalactite formation supposedly shaped like a pair of breasts. The main cave is very attractive, supported by several pillars formed where stalactites and stalagmites have met in the middle. Local tradition has it that anyone who touches these formations will get lost in the caves or be visited by misfortune. A powerful little waterfall lies next to the main cave, with a deep plunge pool below, full of icy cold water."
