Kibale National Park is highest at the park’s northern tip which stands 1590m above sea level. Northern Kibale National Park is also the wettest area, receiving a mean annual rainfall of up to 1700mm, mostly during March-May and September-November. The climate in Kibale National Park is generally pleasant with a mean annual temperature range of 14-27°c. Temperatures are highest (and rainfall lower) in the south where the terrain drops down onto the hot rift valley floor and forest cover gives way to an open grassland.
Southern Kibale adjoins Queen Elizabeth National Park and together these protected areas maintain a 180km long migration corridor for-wildlife which extends from Ishasha, the remote southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park to the Sebitoli forest in the north of Kibale National Park.
The Kibale-Fort Portal area is one of Uganda’s most rewarding areas to explore. Kibale National Park lies close to the tranquil Ndali-Kasenda crater area and is within a half day’s drive of the Queen Elizabeth, Rwenzori Mountains and Semuliki National Park and the Toro-Semliki Wildlife Reserve.
