4 Days Bigodi Swamp Walking In Kibale Forest Safari

Kibale Forest National Park Safari

A 4-day Kibale Safari in Uganda would typically involve exploring the Kibale National Park, which is known for its diverse primate population, including chimpanzees, as well as its beautiful landscapes and rich biodiversity. Bigodi swamp walk is done in the bigodi wetland sanctuary. The word Bigodi was derived from the rutoro word “Kugodya” which literally means walking in a sluggish tiredly way and this gives us a feeling what is going to be done in bigodi. This walk will introduce you to many bird species that you will literally enjoy and love their great songs which makes it best for bird-watching travelers
