It's not about volunteering, its fun exploring Kibale forest in Uganda. Situated at entrance of Kibale Forest National Park, Kibale forest area is one of Uganda’s most rewarding destinations to explore. It’s located just outside Kibale National Park 18km along Kamwenge road, Fort Portal Western part of Uganda.

Travellerers willing to volunteer at Kibale River Camp will have the opportunity to interact with local communities, explore crater lakes, do forest walk, visit tea estates, visit orphanages and schools, help in local hospitals or health centers.

The accommodation for their stay has been designed and furnished with nature in mind creating a feeling of comfort and relaxation in the chimp & crater lakes region. All units include a seating and dining area. There is also a self catering kitchen. There is an eco friendly open bathroom with hot shower and with free toiletries in every unit.

My experience in Rweteera was wonderful. The whole team was very kind and welcoming- I feel like I have another family in Uganda now! The work was chill, leaving me plenty of time to explore the area or relax around the camp, which is a quaint spot on the edge of the jungle where you really feel immersed in nature. It's just a stunning place with great people, definitely recommend :)

I had an incredible time in Rweteera, the team was amazing and welcomed me as family, they made me everything they could to make me feel home and enjoy.
The job was easy, with enough free time to enjoy the nature around, watch the hippos in the lake and walk around the community.
If you're looking for a quiet lodge with amazing people to work with and be in contact with the nature I'd highly recommend this place.

Que time incrível! Que lugar encantador! Que natureza! Meus dias na frente desse lago com hipopótamos foram demais. Eu tinha minha própria barraca super confortável e o trabalho ao lado desse equipe não poderia ser mais leve. Ajudava na cozinha, a cuidar do jardim... me davem a liberdade de como e quando fazer. Também me mostraram a beleza da região, fiz caminhadas, visitei hot springs...foi demais! Sem contar poder apreciar o canto dos belos passarinhos que o país tem! Não deixe de apreciar o contato com a natureza do lugar!
