Nestled in the heart of Kibale National Park, Primate Lodge is one of the very best lodges in Uganda in which to be based if your focus is tracking chimpanzees. The lodge is actually set in the forest and is so well placed that you may be lucky enough to wake up to find a chimpanzee on your verandah.
Primate Lodge - The Details
Primate Lodge has a total of 17 rooms, but you'd be forgiven for having no idea on arrival. The lodge is right in the heart of the forest and in an effort to keep the lodge as natural as possible, each room is built in just a small clearing with the forest naturally growing around it. This gives each of the rooms an unrivalled sense of privacy, all having their own small access path through the trees snaking from the main path around the perimeter.
There are two room types here - 9 Luxury Cottages and 7 Forest Cottages. Whilst the Forest Cottages are fine, the Luxury ones are what we would recommend. Vey spacious and very private each has a good size en-suite, large and comfortable bed and a small outside veranda. The main area has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, dinner is served on the terrace and the food is tasty and hearty - perfect after a day of chimpanzee trekking!
