Later on, you will enjoy your packed lunch and some relaxation before setting out on an afternoon boat ride on the Victoria Nile, a highlight of a Murchison Falls safari when you might have close encounters with animals along the river: hippos, Nile crocodiles, elephants, buffaloes, and many other animals, that come to drink water, refresh and cool themselves off from the scorching sun, and feed on the fresh grass along the river banks. You will return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

Trek through the rain forest and bamboo-covered slopes, accompanied by an Uganda Wildlife Authority guide and other trackers, in search of a mountain gorilla family. The walking can sometimes be tough and long, but when you catch a glimpse of the magnificent silverback, any discomforts will be quickly forgotten. Due to the nature of the activity, you will have a packed lunch. After gorilla trekking, you will drive through the terraced hills to Lake Bunyonyi for a relaxing evening at the resort with a stunning view of Lake Bunyonyi. You can even have a canoe ride on the lake to discover its scattered islands (optional). You will later check-in at your lodge for dinner and overnight.
