This Uganda gorilla and wildlife safari will take you to Kibale National Park, where you will track chimps and other primates, to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where you will go mountain gorilla trekking, and to Queen Elizabeth National Park, where you will enjoy many game drives and a boat cruise. The ultimate cost of this safari includes a gorilla permit worth $700 per person.
Day 1 Entebbe International Airport is where you will arrive. Upon your arrival, the company guide will greet you kindly and bring you to your hotel in Kampala, where you will have the opportunity to spend a night out. Depending on your arrival time, you can also decide for a brief city tour, rest, and prepare for your amazing excursion.
Day 2 Kibale National Park Transfer After breakfast at the lodge, the guide will give you a thorough overview of the safari, and you will depart for Kibale National Park, where you will make multiple stops for photos and experiments. You’ll stop for lunch en route and then head to the park for an overnight stay and dinner.
Day 3 Trekking with Chimpanzees & Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park After breakfast, head to the chimp tracking activity briefing. Chimpanzees are man’s closest relatives, despite being one of the most endangered primate species. More primates such as Black and white Colobus monkeys, L’Hoest Monkeys, Grey cheeked Mangabeys, Red tailed monkeys, bush babies, pottos, and many bird species such as the yellow spotted nicator, rumped tinker bird, Little greenbul, green breasted pitta, crowned eagle, black bee eater, and mammals such as Elephants can be seen on this walk. After that, travel to Queen Elizabeth National Park and unwind when you arrive.
Day 4 In Queen Elizabeth National Park, go on a game drive and take a boat excursion. Take a game drive along the Kasenyi Track in the park’s northern section in search of lions, elephants, and solitary buffaloes. Due to the large number of Uganda Kobs in the area, now is the greatest time to see the cats in action. We have a fantastic opportunity to see almost every animal up close and personal here. Before heading out on a launch voyage around the Kazinga Channel, return to the resort for breakfast. This lets you to see wildlife up close: hippopotamuses snort and spray just feet away from the boat, and buffalo linger in the shallows. Pink-backed pelicans, pied and malachite kingfishers, saddle-billed storks, and a variety of other birds can be found along the channel’s beaches.
Day 6 Bwindi Impenetrable National Park offers gorilla trekking. Breakfast early in the morning, then head to the park headquarters for a briefing on the dos and don’ts of gorilla trekking in Bwindi. After that, the rangers will lead you to the dense rainforest, where you will begin your search for the gentle giants. Raincoats and boots should always be carried by trekkers because the weather in this area is constantly unpredictable. There are also some potters who are always willing to assist with luggage carrying on behalf of visitors for a nominal fee. It’s never easy to forecast how long gorilla tracking will take, and it also relies on where some families are located, as some are located far from the park headquarters. However, contacting them takes anywhere from 2 to 7 hours, and rangers will always be present to assist you. Before commencing tracking, it’s also a good idea for trackers to be physically fit. Return to the resort for a late lunch after your hike (or opt for packed lunch)
Return to Entebbe International Airport
After breakfast, you will be transferred to Entebbe, where you will arrive in the evening. Depending on your departure schedule, the guide will drop you off at the airport or at your hotel.
