Budongo Forest is found in western Uganda along the road to Murchison Falls National Park. The forest is famous for large 80M mahogany trees and large chimpanzee population estimated to be over 800. These make the forest a popular option for Chimpanzee tracking.
The forest is approximately 435 sq KM in size is characterised largely of moist, medium-altitude, semi-deciduous woodland, with spots of grassland and forest. The jungle occupies a moderately rolling scenery, leaning down to the East African Rift. Four streams that flow into Lake Albert include Sonso, Waisoke, Siba and Kamirambwa drain the green forest.
The forest’s annual rainfall is between 1200 – 2200 mm and the rainy season runs from March to May and still from September to November. Then the dry season occurs between December and February.
