Kibale Forest National Park is to the northeast of the Queen Elizabeth National Park, close to Fort Portal and Kasese, and includes part of the Mpanga forest. Originally the reserve was home to herds of migrating elephants but they are now seen less and less. However, eleven species of primates, including many families of chimpanzees and colobus monkeys live in the northern reserve. Buffalo, warthog and Uganda Kob can be sighted also.
The grassland in the south of the reserve is also home to various interesting species of birds and insects.
