Day by Day Overview
An early wake up and rise by 6 am for a quick cup of coﬀee or tea and a snack before setting out for the early game drive in Murchison Falls National Park. Divided by the River Nile, the northern part of the park is largely covered by savannah and woodland supporting a large volume and variety of animals compared to the southern region, which has a bigger chunk covered by forest. As such game drives are done in the northern area of Murchison Falls. The early start oﬀers a better chance to find elusive predators such as lions, hyenas, leopard and jackal because they are still out actively hunting. Explore the game trails towards the Lake Albert delta which is concentrated with big game such as elephants, buﬀaloes, giraﬀes and many antelope. Enjoy the beautiful savannah landscape that is immersed with plenty of life and wonderful scenery.
The game drive will last for 4 hours and then return to the lodge for breakfast and relax. After lunch set out for a 2-hour boat cruise which sets oﬀ at Paraa, heading upstream to the base of the Murchison Falls. The boat ride oﬀers an array of wildlife sightings: crocodile, hippos and lizards are a common sight throughout the cruise. Big game such as buﬀaloes, elephants and antelopes can also be sighted drinking and cooling oﬀ in the heat along the river bank. After the boat trip you can set out for a 45 minute hike to the top of the falls with great views of the falls at diﬀerent spots along the trail. On reaching the top you will find the tour guide waiting to drive you back to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
After breakfast drive to Kibale Forest National Park. After arriving at our next lodge we will spend the afternoon connecting with each other in a yoga class that consists of beautifully chosen partner asanas. Moving is beautiful, but moving together even more. Before we head over to the dinner table you are invited to sink in again and reflect on the last few days, all the new experiences and impressions you sucked in. Your yoga teacher will help you travel through body and mind using the power of your breath.

After your morning breakfast, we will start driving to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest with game viewing en route in Ishasha for 2-3 hours. Look out for tree climbing lions and other savannah wildlife species like elephants, buﬀaloes, hyenas and leopards. Lunch on the way as you proceed to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Park. On arrival check in to your lodge for dinner and overnight.
We will have breakfast and then drive to the park headquarters by 7 am for a briefing about your gorilla trekking experience. Then set oﬀ for this remarkable experience of searching for the famous mountain gorillas. The activity takes 2-9 hours depending on the movement of the gorillas in the jungle, however the thrill of encountering these humble and gentle giants erases the memories you went through while finding them. While looking out for the gorillas expect to meet a few other forest species such as monkeys, forest elephants, duikers, birds and more. We will then check out of Bwindi to drive to Lake Bunyonyi for late check in and dinner at our lodge.
A day to give love to your body and soul. After a relaxed breakfast we will start our day with some simple asanas to wake up the body. You’re invited to let yourself fall and explore the magical world of acro yoga. Learn how to fly. Learn how to carry the world on your feet. In several units you will get to know basic exercises to create trust, strengthen your balance and get to know yourself and others better. All levels are welcome, we will start from the beginning and grow together.
Acro yoga is a fusion of yoga, acrobatic and Thai massage. In this beautiful practice we have to work together in groups. Our principles will be honesty, acceptance and trust. Without those we will not be able to fly together. Be gentle to yourself and others and communicate openly with the group. Every acro yoga session will end with a guided Thai massage within the group to give thanks and love to our bodies. Use this day to follow your needs and do good to yourself. There are facilities in the lodge to relax and take a break from travelling and exploring. You’re invited to take part in an afternoon yoga class as well, before we have dinner together.
After coming back to Entebbe there will be enough time to share and end this beautiful adventure together. In the evening there will be one last movement together. In our last acro yoga session we will touch the clouds together with a lot of playful exercises and practices. Lets move, enjoy and laugh together before we all head back home.
