Gorillas in the mountains in the southwest, Chimpansees in Kibala forest and so many species more. Uganda has a wide variety of 13 species of primates.
Here you see a Black and White Colobus, a quiote common species.
When we stayed at Emfuzi campo in the crater lake district there were several of these beautiful monkeys to be seen in the lush vegetation around the crater lake. I could walk up to about 5 meter and make this photo.

An excellent close-up on this monkey, I feel as if I can reach out and touch him though I imagine this would not be a very good idea in real life:-) Superb detailing in the coat and very good light management.

This is a fine portrait of the gorilla. The close up detail is great and presented with excellent sharpness. Your light management is excellent as well.

Very nice close up portrait of the colobus monkey. Fantastic details. I have the pleasure of seeing some of them in Kenya. they are fun to watch as they jump around in the tree feeding and play with each other. The way they mouth and look of their eyes make them look so sad all the time.
Really good shot here, feel like I can just reach out and touch it.

Expressive portrait, this monkey seems to thing of philosophical problems, but it is probably just looking for tasty food :)

Oh my girlfriend would love to have the opportunity to photograph these animals!
its a sweet looking profile from this angle.
very cute with its small nose and small ears.
pretty cool too, that you could get up so close.
fine shot with lots of detailing and sharpness.

What a beautiful creature. I like your extreme close crop so that we can see his lovely features clearly, he looks so gentle. Good sharpness on the eye area where it needs to be.
