Primate Lodge in Kibale is situated in the heart of Kibale Forest National Park adjacent to the park headquarters. It is set in the lush tropical forest which is home to 13 different species of primates, including the highlight chimpanzees. 

Stone walkways connect the various stone and thatch rooms which overlook the forest. Gaudy turacos, nicators and flycatchers abound around the rooms and main guest area and the surreal calls of chimpanzees can be heard at any time of day. In the evenings the central fireplace is great for gathering under the forest cathedral.

The popular double storied ‘Elephant Banda’ comprises an upstairs bedroom which extends out over a large, elevated thatched wooden deck/veranda which too seems to extend right into the forest canopy. The deck is very popular for evening relaxation with a drink as you soak in the sunrays sipping through the tall forest trees. It is also an ideal spot for private room-service dinning either breakfast or lunch in the company of Black and White Colobus Monkeys or Red Colobus Monkeys that frequent the surrounding trees. It can also be amazing for candlelit dinner for your special night.

The ground floor room comprises a spacious living room and separate shower rooms and lavatory. The room has been sometimes been taken for small families with the down stairs room converted into a small bed room for one person.

Secluded far deeper into the forest and thus far more private, it’s most the elevated cottage’ is fitted with a giant 7×7 King size Bed, it is very popular with honeymooners, anniversaries and other ‘hopeless romantics’ who can also enjoy private lounging and dining at the extensive upstairs veranda that seems to go right into the forest.
