Currently, the facilities at Kanyawara can accommodate up to 85 researchers and trainees. MUBFS has two main centres; Kanyawara and Ngogo. Available services at Kanyawara include electricity, running water, laundry and limited transport. The field station maintains a grid of forest access trails covering a total of approximately 200 km at Kanyawara and Ngogo.
There is a well stocked library with books covering a wide range of topics in the fields of conservation, ecology, botany and zoology. Accommodation facilities at Kanyawara include two-bedroom houses, duplexes and dormitories. A kitchen and dining hall are also available. Catering services are available at a reasonable rate for groups of at least ten people; smaller groups can cook for themselves using MUBFS’ kitchen and utensils. A laboratory with rudimentary equipment is also available.
Accommodation at Ngogo has remained limited; there are only four houses that house up to three senior researchers and support staff. Graduate students, up to six, generally sleep in tents. It must however be emphasized that Ngogo is a great site for studying chimpanzees and other ecological studies. The chimpanzee community at Ngogo is comprised of over 180 individuals, the largest ever recorded in the wild.
Through Prof. Chapman, a funding was secured from National Geographic to construct a multipurpose structure for the herbarium/museum. The structure is located in a botanical garden. However, the herbarium/museum is not yet operational but plans are under way to procure equipment.
