Budongo and Kanyiyo Pabidi, near Murchison Falls,
Contain one of the most extensive mahogany forests in East Africa, and the region’s largest chimpanzee population - about 900 animals. Chimp tracking is available either at Busingiro, in the south of Budongo, or at Kanyiyo Pabidi on the road to Murchison.
The birdlife in the forest is prolific - about 330 species.
The strange Bunyoro rabbit
can also sometimes be seen at night. There is a church nearby which was built by
Polish refugees in the war. Kabalega, the powerful king of Bunyoro at the turn
of the 19th century, is buried at the Mparo Tombs near Hoima.
