Day by Day Overview

Arrival at Entebbe airport and transfer to your accommodation in Entebbe or Kampala.

Full board at Topaz Guest Home

Make sure you have a good breakfast, then sit back and enjoy the beautiful Ugandan countryside on a 6-hour drive to Kibale National Park and the first highlight of your tour.

Full board at Kibale Forest Camp

In the morning you will be hiking off the beaten track, through the jungle in search of chimpanzees.  Once you find them, it will be a fascinating experience as you watch them play, feed and swing through the trees, which is highly entertaining. Primate and bird watching will be the highlights of the afternoon walk in the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary.

On our way to Queen Elizabeth National Park we cross the Equator. In the afternoon you will have a game drive during which you will have the chance to see lions, elephants, several breeds of antelope, birds and much more.

Full board at Bush Lodge

We will start the day with an early morning game drive while many animals are still on the move during the cool part of the day. Keep your eyes peeled and you could see lions, buffalo, elephants, antelopes, the elusive bush pig and you might even be lucky enough to spot a leopard! Hippos, buffalo, crocodiles and many species of birds can be seen during the afternoon boat trip on the Kazinga Channel.

A leisurely drive through Queen Elizabeth National Park brings us to Ishasha, one of the few regions in Africa where lions can be spotted climbing trees and lounging on branches. Therefore, make sure that during the game drive you are not only looking out over the savannah, but also have your eyes focused up in the trees!

Full board at Enjojo Lodge

The search for the tree climbing lions continues on the morning game drive, after which we head to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The drive can take from 2 to 5 hours, depending on your chosen accommodation and the condition of the road.

Full board – accommodation depends on the tracking area

Put your boots on and grab a sturdy walking stick, today is a once in a lifetime experience: gorilla tracking! It is one of the best Ugandan travel experiences you can have. You will be hiking up in the mountains which can take between 2 to 6 hours depending on how far the gorillas are. After tracking you will transfer to Lake Bunyonyi, one of the deepest and most beautiful lakes in Africa, and one of the few where it is possible to swim in croc and bilharzia-free waters.

Full board at Bird Nest

After breakfast we will drive 4-5 hours to Lake Mburo National Park. The park has a variety of animals such as leopard, zebra, impala, buffalo and over 300 bird species, many of which you will see on the afternoon game drive. Horseback safaris and boat trips on the lake are also available.
