Stunning setting among the rainforest, you really are at one with nature here as monkeys swing in the trees above. There is a lovely nature walk (about 15 mins) which circles the camp. Rooms are spacious and characterful with the bonus of electricity (part time only) hot water and flushing loos. The food was really really nice and flavoursome, some... More

I stayed here with two friends as part of a trip organised by Primate World Safaris. It's an incredible place. Everyone is wonderfully friendly, and the real magic comes from staying in the forest, surrounded by its sounds. We went for a short walk when we arrived, and were surprised and delighted to spot tens of monkeys within minutes! Lovely,... More

A night in the jungle, in a tent, but with the maximum of confort and an excellent staff. What else could be asked? Food was also very good. The whole thing is like an adventure. The Bigodi wetland sanctuary is at 5 minutes only by car. I can only recommand Kibale Forest Camp to everyone passing by Kibale.

We loved the place, the tents and the food. The staff was very friendly. The surroundings amazing. Only 15 minutes drive to Kibale forest. The wake up calls with coffee were a great compensation during the early bird starts.

Right in the middle of the jungle, with monkeys, birds, and insects making a concert every evening. This is a VERY cool place to stay. Not super luxurious, but that's not what they are trying to be (or what you are paying for). The rooms and food are good quality for the price, and it is conveniently located near the... More

The tents were clean and comfortable, tje showers were powerful and warm, which is really unusual in Uganda, the location was nice, on the edge of a swamp i side a patch of secondary rainforest. However, the most amazing thibg was food. The quality was similar to the Dutchess in Fort Portal!

This is a stunning camp with beautiful rooms and very friendly staff. It's in the middle of the forest and there were monkeys and butterflies everywhere. The rooms themselves absolutely beautiful, and had lights and electricity 24/7. Showers are hot from early evening onward, but you can request yours to be heated at other times if you want.

Beautiful place, Friendly staff, great food. And with 60 dollars for a tent (you had to share showers and toilets, which were very clean) it was one of the cheapest but also probably one of the best places to stay in Kibale Forrest.

What a great experience to stay here. Beautiful scenery, with monkeys and baboons hanging around your tent. The tent is big, clean and well equipped. It has a nice and comfortable bed, strong hot shower, electricity, good quality furniture, and a terrace you can share with the wildlife. This was a genuine experience. The food as well was great with... More
