At Kibale National Forest, you can track the chimpanzees for one hour or up to 12, with naturalists from the National Park Service. It is fascinating to watch and follow them through the forest.

I have been to Uganda twice and I had never seen any snake there. You can enjoy your Gorilla treking without fear of snakes. Uganda is amazing country.
