Chimpanzees are members of the Hominidae family which includes gorillas, humans, and orangutans. Chimpanzees are regarded as the closest living relatives to Humans with 99% identical DNA between human beings and chimpanzees. The brain of a chimpanzee is less than one third the size of the human brain.
A fully grown male Chimpanzees can measure up to 1.7meters high (5.6ft) when standing and can weigh up to 70kgs. The female chimpanzee is slightly smaller. They use their arms for climbing up in the trees and will use all the four legs while walking on the ground. Chimps will communicate in the same manner similar to those of human non-verbal communications, by using vocalizations, hand gestures, and facial expressions. Chimpanzees will normally reach puberty at an age of between 8 and 10 years, and rarely live past age 40 in the wild, but have been known to live more than 60 years in captivity.
Chimpanzees live in communities with large male and female communities. Some chimpanzees are very aggressive while others are very shy just like humans. The larger males like to put on displays to command respect. At night, chimpanzees tend to make their beds in trees by bending branches into a nest and they will always shift to other areas for making new nests daily and will sleep for over 9hrs.
Chimpanzee tracking in Uganda is done in gazetted areas by the Uganda wildlife Authority in Budongo forest Murchison falls National Park, Kyambura Gorge in Queen Elizabeth National Park, and Kibale forest National Park. Chimpanzees can also be tracked in Ngamba Islands where orphaned or chimpanzees freed from captivity are taken.
