Itinerary

Fly to Entebbe
Day 1-3

Kibale Forest, Uganda

This morning you will embark on your journey to Kibale through interesting towns and villages on a private transfer. In Kibale you will have the chance to trek through the forest in search of its most famous inhabitant, the chimpanzee. Join your expert guide and explore the forest's paths, keeping your eyes peeled for not just the chimpanzee, but also bush pig and forest elephant. Walk through Bigodi Swamp in search of a variety of monkey and the great blue turaco, amongst many other bird species in this expansive wetland.

Accommodation: Kyaninga Lodge ( 2 nights )
Day 3-5

Queen Elizabeth National Park

From Kibale, drive up to Queen Elizabeth National Park and head for the Ishasha region, in the remote, southern sector of the park. Drier than the north of the park, this woodland area is home to the exquisite tree-climbing lion. Here you can experience safari from the comfort of your private vehicle, and look out for elephant, buffalo and of course the park's lion. Other activities available include a cruise on the Kazinga channel home to vast numbers of hippos, elephants, crocodiles and impressive numbers of birds, as well as intimate bush breakfasts and dinners.

Accommodation: Ishasha Wilderness Camp ( 2 nights )
Day 5-8

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda

After a final game drive, travel down to the south-western corner of Uganda, and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home to the famous mountain gorilla. This is one of the few places in the world where you can trek to see the elusive mountain gorilla in its natural habitat, as Bwindi contains around half of the world's population of this endangered species. A once in a lifetime opportunity, watch as the families interact and the infants play in their forest home. When you are not out enjoying your gorilla trekking experience, get to know the vibrant local community that borders this National Park on an educational village visit or take nature walks in the dense lush forest. At the end of your adventure you will fly back to Entebbe by light charter to catch your flight home.

Accommodation: Buhoma Lodge ( 3 nights )
