Experience the world renowned Ugandan hospitality amidst unrivaled nature, scenery and serenity in the heart of Kibale rainforest National Park, Uganda’s primates’ paradise and home to over 13 different species of primates and numerous other mammals, butterflies and birds. Primate Lodge Kibale’s principal edge is our location, tucked deep in the forest and right next door to the starting point for Chimpanzee tracking excursion as well as the incredible Chimpanzee Habituation, really, two of the most genuinely breath-taking wildlife experiences on the planet.

All of our nine spacious and en-suite Luxury Cottages, each secluded deep in the forest for maximum privacy and a natural ‘living in nature’ feel, come complete with 2x Double size Bed or 1x King Size Bed, a sitting area with two comfortable arm chairs, a reading table and an adjoining large veranda with excellent views to the forest. The seven mid-level Forest Cottages are private and en-suite with spacious bathrooms, 2x Twin size Beds or 1x King Size Bed as well as a spacious veranda over-looking the rain-forest with lounge chairs. The popular double storied ‘Elephant Banda’ has an upstairs bedroom fitted with a giant King size Bed and a downstairs living room where we can also place a smaller extra bed. As a double occupancy, it is very popular with honeymooners, anniversaries and the ‘hopeless romantics’ who can also enjoy private lounging and dining at the extensive upstairs veranda that seems to go right into the forest.

Other lodge amenities include a spacious dining terrace, a well-stocked bar, complimentary room service, a secluded lounge area with a small library, an evening camp fire, laundry service (at a small fee) as well as free WiFi in the public areas.

    As a visiting guest, the experience with the staffs at Primate Lodge and the serenity of the forest was so healing for I a passionate conservationist. We had our meals on time, rooms fixed whenever we moved out and the staffs were always at our pre-disposal whenever we needed them

    Good 4 Star Lodge. Really good position as its situation in the heart of the Kadile Forrest. The meeting point for the start of the chimpanzee walk is only a 5min drive away

    My wife and I stayed here in July of 2022 for our honeymoon and I'm just now getting around to leaving a review (10 months later). We absolutely loved our stay at the Primate Lodge. We can recommend it with great confidence. The staff was amazing (big shout out to Amanda), the food was incredible, and the lodge is beautiful. Best of all is the location -- right in the middle of the National Park where you are surrounded by all the primates. Such a special place to stay in Uganda. I'm still dreaming about our time at the Primate Lodge and hope we can return at some point in our life. Just incredible. Thank you for having us.

    Lovely small lodge in the park right next to the Chimpanzee trek office. Great food, superb service, and comfortable rooms with hot showers and comfortable beds. Private all round. The only negative was they could use a fan for air movement in hot weather.
