Photographing chimps in Uganda

Jump to last reply

Hi, everybody. I'm in the final stages of booking a Gorillas and Chimps trip to Uganda and Rwanda.

We are going to Kibale Forest NP, Kyambura (Chambura) Gorge in QENP amd Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary to see chimps, but I'm not sure of the best way to balance the number of days spent at each to get the best photographic opportunities.

I think that photographing them will be hard at Kibale and Kyambura, due to the light conditions and the fact that they are fast moving. Comments from those of you who have been there and done it would be appreciated.

We've scheduled some time at the end of the trip to visit Ngamba Island but feel a bit daunted by all the medical stuff - have people really had to have a chest x-ray to prove they haven't got TB? Also, they say that the chimps try to take your cameras off you if you walk with them, so if we just did a feeding session what kind of photo opps would this give us?

This bit of our itinerary is proving really difficult to balance, but I must get it sorted out by Monday or the flights and the gorilla permits might become unavailable! All advice welcome!
