The Budongo Forest Ecotourism Project has been initiated by the Uganda Forest Department to encourage sustainable conservation and income generation programmes for the local communities.
The largest mahogany forest in East Africa located on the banks of Lake Albert, south of Murchison Falls National Park, Budongo is home to huge hard tropical trees. It has plenty beautiful birds such as the Chocolate-backed or Blue-breasted kingfisher, Black-billed Toraco and White-thighed Hornbill.
The forest is also home to seven species of primates, including the largest population of chimpanzees. Guided walks and primate tracking take place every morning and afternoon. The two main sites are Kamiyo Pabidi Ecotourist site and Busingiro Ecotourist site.
