Another one of our popular trips, it makes a great addition to other routes and can also stand on its own (average 3-4 days). Enjoy the tranquil Rwenzori Mountains and feisty chimps of Kibale Forest with this short getaway.

Fort Portal is an amazing little city. It’s considered the Switzerland of Uganda. Based at the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains, this is popular destination for locals and tourists alike. Get ready to slow down from the hustle of Kampala and enjoy hikes and a relaxed vibe.

Kibale Forest is close to Fort Portal and offers chimp tracking and habituation (overnight).

Day 1

Drive to Fort Portal in the far west of Uganda (approx. 5-6 hours). This area is green, lush, and covered in crater lakes. It is a great getaway for locals and tourists alike. We recommend relaxing in town or at your accommodation. Our favorite place is basic but entertaining with a private crater lake to swim in and lots of monkeys to keep you entertained!

Day 2

After breakfast, explore the region on foot or bike. We recommend adding a visit to the Nyinamwiru Healing Waters to your trip. Want to see primates? This is the day we can take you for forest walks and chimp tracking in nearby Kibale National Park. No matter what you’ll do, you’ll want to relax this evening before our drive back to Kampala tomorrow.

Day 3
