Day by Day Overview
Our safari guide from Primate Experts Uganda will welcome you on arrival, give you a briefing about your safari and transfer you to the booked accommodation in Entebbe or Kampala.
After breakfast you will be transferred by road to Kibale National Park. En route, you will pass tea plantations and beautiful scenery. On the way, stop in Fort Portal Tourism City for lunch. In the afternoon you will arrive in Kibale, check in at your lodge, and go for a Bigodi Community Walk Experience.
After breakfast you will go for chimp tracking and enjoy a wonderful forest experience. Kibale’s 795 km2 National Park contains one of the most beautiful and varying tracts of tropical forest in the whole of Uganda. This is home to 13 species of primate including chimpanzees. The park’s highest point is at 1590 m above sea level. After lunch you proceed to Queen Elisabeth National Park, enjoying a game drive on your way in. Named after her Majesty the Queen of England, it is Uganda’s most popular and most scenic game reserves. It stretches from the crater-dotted foothills of the Rwenzori range in the north, along the shores of Lake Edward to the remote Ishasha River in the south, incorporating a wide variety of habitats that range from savanna and wetlands and lowland forest.
Enjoy an early morning game drive. There are over 100 mammal species that include lion, hippo, buffalo, leopard, spotted hyena, elephant and the elusive giant forest hog in this park. The primates include chimps, black and white colobus monkeys, blue monkeys, black faced monkeys, red colobus, red tailed monkeys and olive baboons. Queen Elizabeth boasts one of the highest bio diversity ratings of any game park, from the open savannah to rain forest, dense papyrus swamps, and beautiful bird species restricted to only this rift valley. Return to the lodge and in the afternoon enjoy a boat ride on Kazinga Channel.
Depart for Bwindi National Park in the morning. On your way you will have a chance for a game drive in the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park where tree climbing lions are found, then continue to the home of the mountain gorillas, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Of Uganda’s forested parks, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is best known for gorilla tracking, but it also provides refuge to elephants, chimpanzees, monkeys and various small antelopes, as well as 23 bird species restricted to this region.
This morning you will get up very early for your amazing gorilla trekking. Trekking the mountain gorilla is one of the most exciting wildlife experiences on earth. The trek will take between 2 and 6 hours, but is well worth the effort. You will be led by an experienced ranger who will tell you interesting facts about flora and fauna and the lifestyle of the gorillas.
In the morning, after breakfast, you will check out of the lodge and drive to Kampala or Entebbe International Airport for your flight back home. You will stop in Mbarara town for lunch and have a memorable stop at the equator line where you will have pictures with one leg in the northern hemisphere and the other in the southern hemisphere. From the equator experience, continue to your hotel in Kampala/Entebbe or the airport for your flight back home .
