Day by Day Overview

Arrival at Entebbe airport and transfer to your accommodation nearby.

Topaz Guest Home: Full Board 

We are heading north. Our first stop will be at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary where you will have an extraordinary experience observing and learning about the conservation of the highly endangered white rhinos. Enjoy a relaxed evening at the Lodge.

Amuka Lodge: Half Board 

Early in the morning you will do a boat tour into the swamp to search for the shy shoebill. Afterwards we proceed to Murchison Falls National Park. On the way you will be treated to one of the loudest sights in Uganda at the top of Murchison Falls, where the powerful river Nile forces its way through a gap only 7 metres wide.

Fort Murchison: Full Board 

Today we will have an early morning game drive and a relaxing afternoon boat ride along the Victoria Nile River where you will encounter animals gathering on the riverbanks and an abundance of crocodiles and hippos. You’ll get to see the thundering falls from the bottom as the boat turns for the return journey.

Fort Murchison: Full Board

Your next game drive will start early in the morning. After breakfast we will drive to Hoima. On our way we stop at Budongo Forest for a jungle walk. Enjoy the sound of the forest.

Kontiki Hotel: Half Board 

Make sure you have a good breakfast! We will have a 6-hour drive to Kibale National Park, so you will have plenty of time to enjoy the breathtaking scenery enroute.

Kibale Forest Camp: Full Board

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.

Kibale Forest Camp: Full Board 

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.

Bush Lodge: Full Board 

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. Stay alert 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 spotted during the afternoon boat trip on the Kazinga Channel.

Bush Lodge: Full Board

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!

Enjojo Lodge: Full Board 

Something different today as we spend some time with the villagers of Kyeshero as they go about their lives. We’ll get a feel for the daily routine of the Bakiga people who have occupied this part of Uganda for centuries. We’ll work alongside them collecting water, gathering food from the fields and cooking a typical Ugandan meal, which we will then enjoy together. It might be warm work, but don’t worry, there’ll be the chance to try some obushera – the Bakiga’s favourite locally brewed drink. You’ll gain a real sense of how communities here work and be overwhelmed by the warmth and generosity of the welcome you receive. Many guests tell us this day becomes an unexpected highlight of their whole safari. Afterwards we proceed to your accommodation, in anticipation of tomorrow’s gorilla adventure.

Depends on the tracking area: Full Board 

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.

Depends on the tracking area: Full Board 

Our next stop will be Lake Bunyonyi, one of the deepest and most beautiful lakes in Africa. You will have time to relax, take a nature walk or go bird watching. You could try your hand at paddling a dugout canoe or go swimming in the hippo, croc and bilharzia-free waters. You can also visit the local community.

Bird Nest: Half Board

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.

Mpogo Lodge: Full Board 

In the morning you can try to milk the local cows and learn more about the local people. After a relaxed breakfast we are heading back to Entebbe and your scheduled flight, with the hope we have whet your appetite for even more African safari adventures.
