This gorilla and chimpanzee safari takes you to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for gorilla trekking, and Queen Elizabeth National Park for animal viewing and chimpanzee trekking, as well as scenic seeing.
Arrival on the first day Entebbe International Airport is located in Entebbe, Uganda. When you arrive, you will be greeted by a company representative who will transport you to your hotel in Kampala or Entebbe. You will check in and relax for the evening while preparing for a transfer the next day. If your flight arrives early enough, you might go for a city walk in Entebbe or Kampala Capital City.
Transfer to the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. After breakfast, your guide will pick you up from your accommodation to begin your transfer to the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The journey to Bwindi Gorilla Park is long, but it’s worth it for the panoramic views of lush greenery and ancient homesteads. You will stop at the equator for artisan shopping and lunch in Mbarara before continuing to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park for gorilla trekking. You will arrive at the park headquarters late in the evening. At your lodge, you will check-in.
Gorilla trekking in the park. A cup of coffee in the morning and a search for mountain gorillas in Bwindi’s rainforest forest. Trekking the Mountain Gorillas in the deep jungle is the most interesting and unforgettable activity for gorilla hikers. The time spent trekking varies depending on the gorillas’ movements, but it usually lasts between 2 and 8 hours. Before you begin hiking, plan to go for a long-distance across muddy and hilly terrain before encountering the great apes in the jungle. As you sit, play, and converse with the gorillas, the experience is clearly enjoyable. No one with communicable diseases such as diarrhoea is allowed to see the gorillas safeguard the gorillas and guests. You will return to your lodge after your trek.
Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Enjoy a morning meal at your lodge before beginning your transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park via the Ishasha sector, where you can see tree-climbing lions. After arriving at the park, you will go on an evening game drive to see a variety of creatures such as kobs, antelopes, buffalos, lions, elephants, birds, and more. Later, you’ll check into your lodge for the night.
Chimpanzee Trekking & Boat Cruise Early in the morning, eat breakfast, and then go chimpanzee trekking in Kyambura gorge or Kalizu Forest Reserve, where you will spend over 2 to 3 hours with these monkeys. Many other animals, such as monkeys, birds, and baboons, can also be seen in the gorge. Return to the resort for lunch before embarking on a boat trip on the Kazinga Channel, where you will have the opportunity to observe a variety of wildlife such as crocodiles, hippos, birds, buffalos, and more.
Day 6: Departure Breakfast will be served at the lodge, and then you will be transferred back to Kampala, arriving in time to be carried to Entebbe International Airport for your departing flight.
