Its approximately 375km, 5hour drive from Kampala.This is one of the natural forests in Uganda that has got a great impact on the tourism industry of Uganda due to its wide range of biodiversity and physical features.This is a natural rain forest.

It habits 414 tree species, 379 species of birds, 262 butterflies and it is evident that it has got only two species that are not found elsewhere in the world. The tour for monkey tracking takes about 2-3 hours and one is able to see the various types of monkeys like the blue monkeys, vervet monkeys, and black and white Columbus monkeys and the rare L’hoest monkeys.River trails in kajojo or Elephant River where animals like to bath are also seen along the way.Valley trails that lead you to a great view of the fascinating forest features are also evidenced.Palm trail which is 5km with its unique tree species like flame, dragon, saphia palms etc.Waterfall trail which is 11km and therefore being the longest in karinju which passes through the highly and wet areas of the forest.And not forgetting the forest walks which take place within the forested parts of the reserve.Accommodation in the reserve is informal with only a do it yourself camping site at the forest station (nkombe). Visistors are encouraged to carry their own tents or they seek a modest accommodation in bushenyi or ishaka towns. However the construction of a mega hotel called Victoria Falls is ongoing and this will solve the issue of accommodation hopefully.Activities carried out at Kalinzu forest reserve include;Bird watchingEco tourismChimp trekking of which permits are cheaper than elsewhere in Uganda.The success rate of spotting chimpanzees in Kalinzu forest is 95%.
