ITINERARY

DAY 1
Transfer to Kibale Forest National Park

On morning arrival at Entebbe International Airport, you will meet our safari guide representative. We will depart for a half day drive west via Mubende to Fort Portal, passing though the scenic countryside of Rwenzori Mountains. Known as the "Mountains of the Moon", the Rwnezori mountain range in Central Africa is the source of the Nile River. We relax in the afternoon.

DAY 2
Chimpanzee Tracking and Nature Walk

We enter Kibale Forest National Park Forest for primate viewing in the morning. We search for chimpanzees and other primates including phoestes, Red-Colobus, Blues, Red-tailed and grey cheeked Mangabey. After lunch, we visit to Bigodi swamp eco tourism site and explore the areas rare and beautiful flora and fauna. A variety of bird species flourish among these trees.

DAY 3
Depart to Queen Elizabeth National Park

This morning, we depart for Queen Elizabeth National Park. Queen Elizabeth is Uganda's most popular game reserve. It boasts one or the highest bio diversity ratings of any game park in the world, from the open savannah to rain forest, dense swamps and beautiful crater lakes to the vastness of Lake Edward. Almost 100 species are found here including hippos, lions, buffaloes, leopards, hyenas, chimps, colobus monkeys and baboons.

DAY 4
Chimpanzee Tracking and Boat Cruise

We venture into Queen Elizabeth park to view antelopes, hyenas, lion and other animals on the savannah. Also, we enter the Kyambura Gorge to track chimpanzees. In the afternoon, we enjoy the unique 2-hour boat cruise on the Kazinga Channel and into Lake Edward. This trip passes through a high concentration of hippos, buffalo, elephants, crocodile and water birds, for fantastic photo opportunities.

DAY 5
Drive to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

This morning, we will leave for Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home to the few remaining mountain gorillas. Bird life and primate life in Bwindi is quite superb, and there is an incredible variety of flora. Once continuous with the forests of the Virunga Volcanoes (Dian Fossey's stomping ground), Bwindi is now an ecological island, surrounded by cultivation on the rich volcanic soils.

DAY 6
Gorilla Trekking

We head to the park headquarters for a briefing from the Uganda Wildlife Authority before setting off to the forest see the gorillas. The ranger guides will take you through the forest to track gorillas, which can take from half an hour to five hours. A reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes. If you have the afternoon free, you will take a guided village walk to see how the Ugandans live.

DAY 7

We will depart to Kampala, with lunch en route, arriving in the evening. Transfer to the airport if applicable.
