Chimps' Nest is situated at one of the best viewing points, right on the border of Kibale Forest. All cottages and tree houses are self-contained and have solar powered energy throughout the day.
Staying at Chimps' Nest means you are staying amidst the wildlife of the forest!
SLEEPING IN THE JUNGLE
People staying at Chimps' Nest can choose to use:
- Self-contained cottages, all with a splendid view
- Self contained tree houses inside the forest
- Family Cottage inside the forest, next to the river Dura
For really adventurous people, we have the option to sleep in a tree house in the jungle!
We have 2 tree houses in the jungle, built high into a tree (8 to 10 meters high). This gives the unique opportunity to stay on eye level with the monkeys who daily visit the tree houses and the jungle surrounding it.
On an average day you can see more than 5 species of monkeys and sometimes even chimps!
The tree houses are nearby the elephant walking trails, so if you are lucky you might spot them walking around in the night or early morning.
The family cottage is built on a beautiful location at the river Dura, inside the forest. You will be surrounded by various colorful birds, monkeys (incl. Chimps), elephants and other wildlife. It holds two bedrooms with flexible beds which can be either twins or doubles, a living room, a spacious bathroom with hot shower, separate flush toilet and a large balcony hovering over the river. This river is the official border of the Kibale National Park.
It takes about 10 minutes to walk downhill from the restaurant / parking to the cottage and 15 minutes uphill. There is space for one extra mattress on the floor with mosquito net in each bedroom.
We have room service so you don't have to walk up and down all the time. You can enjoy the sounds of the forest from the balcony to the fullest! You will have 100 liters of warm water and 250 liter of cold water available every day. A radio is provided to call for room service or emergencies.
Our cottages are situated on a hill, all with a private and splendid view of Kibale Forest and the Rwenzori Mountains. From your private balcony you can enjoy the wildlife, with the surrounding sounds of birds, monkeys, chimps, and elephants.
The cottages are self-contained with a luxurious and nicely finished shower.
From the restaurant to the tree houses is a 15 minute walk through the jungle. Our guides are happy to accompany you to your tree house.
