Rweteera Safari Park boosts of over 170 birds species for Birders, bird lovers, and conservationists. The birds can be seen around the campsite, Crater Lake shores, swamps, gardens and agricultural plantations.

According to Roussouw “Kibale Forest harbours the greatest variety and concentration of primates found anywhere in East Africa.” Well, thumbs up to that. Kibale is where Rweteera Safari Park is located with wild Chimpanzees, and the apparently ‘elusive’ Red Colobus monkey. Incredibly rich in animal life, Kibale is a place of many firsts for me and Rweteera Safari Park fulfils your dream of birding in the crater lakes.

Tree planting

tree p
Plant a tree in Africa---and invest in Earth's future.

To date over 200 indigenous trees have been planted. As a result Rweteera Safari Park is slowly returning to its natural state - but much more work needs to be done, and we need your help. If you'd like to ‘Plant a tree for Africa', simply ask for details at our reception.

Kibale National Park, located in western Uganda, is renowned for its diversity of monkeys and great apes, of which the best known is the chimpanzee. Deforestation in the past 20 years has led to habitat degradation and consequently to endangerment of biodiversity, however, tree planting activity at Rweteera Safari Park in conjuction with the local community will restore this area.

Environmental Impact

Replacing the trees by the original vegetation increases the biodiversity in the area. Restoring the trees will improve the quality of water in the surrounding areas. It will also restore the habitat of the Chimpanzee and other primates that are seen around Rweteera Safari Park.

Social Impact

The tree planting activity creates employment opportunities to local communities from planting, weeding and tending, etc. Currently almost 20 people are involved in the activity. Besides, the activity will enhance the community bond and elevate the status of women by ensuring their participation in the tree planting activities.

Traditional cultural dances Music, Dance and Drama

Local dancers demonstrate the best of their local culture through a lively hour-long performance, incorporating drama, dance, hand-made musical instruments and riddles. In the Bakiga tribes, both men and women dance by stamping the ground barefoot – the harder you do it the better. Cracks on the floor are an indication that the party was a success!

Craft Demonstration

The group sells baskets, mats, bags and other crafts at Rweteera Safari Park. The women use local materials such as millet straw, banana fibres (these two are agricultural waste), raffia and Phoenix palm leaves, papyrus plants and natural dyes, all from plants that the women grow themselves at their homes.
